Full-Size Floodlit Artificial Grass Pitch Coming to Christy Leahy Park

St Brendans Park FC Tralee astro turf pitch

As projects go, jobs don’t get much closer to HQ than this one. PST Sport is due to commence works shortly constructing a 6,600 sq/m state-of-the-art artificial grass pitch for our neighbours, Tralee grassroots football club, St Brendan’s Park FC taking club facilities to the highest level.

A Thriving Club at the Heart of a Community

St Brendan’s Park FC was founded in 1971 and has been providing a sporting and social outlet for the greater Tralee area for over 50 years. As a club, all involved have worked incredibly hard to put a plan in place for the development of facilities and have worked tirelessly to provide football for all age groups.

Recent success has seen a significant growth in numbers across all sections of the club and in particular an increased interest in kids wanting to play football. St Brendan’s Park FC is striving to meet these growing demands by providing a soft, safe, weatherproof surface for all players to use, that will meet the club’s high-volume usage requirements year-round and allow the club to grow and flourish into the future. The addition of floodlights will allow for nighttime use and, as with all PST pitches, the new facility will act as a significant revenue generator for the club through pitch hire.

  • 300m2 of gravel footpath
  • 356m of 1.2m high spectator fencing
  • 8m high ball stop netting behind both goals
  • Floodlights (300 lux on 6nr. 15m high posts)

SUPERB 50

SUPERB 50 is an exceptionally durable 17,000 dtex diamond shape yarn. Its smooth shape means that it is soft to touch and the fact it is manufactured using the advanced C8 polymer, a purer polymer, makes it extremely resilient. Due to the ability of the fibre to “stand up”, ball roll is as close to a high-quality natural turf pitch as possible, while the ease with which the yarn allows players to twist and turn, takes football on artificial grass to a new level.

New Artificial Grass Facility Will Be a Major Boost for Pobalscoil Na Trionóide

Pobalscoil Na Trionóide Youghal

When the students are off-site for the summer break this year it will be all systems go at Pobalscoil Na Trionóide in Youghal. Work is due to commence shortly on the construction of a state-of-the-art 5,000 sq/m floodlit artificial turf pitch. This new world-class facility will prove to be of huge benefit for the school, and for the wider community of Youghal for evening use and availability for weekend sports and training sessions.

Pobalscoil Na Trionóide opened its doors in 2006, after the decision had been made to bring the three schools in Youghal. Since then, the number of pupils at the school has grown rapidly. The new artificial grass sports surface will give all-year-round access to training for over 800 pupils. These kinds of sports facilities can and will make a real difference to the amount of time children get to play and train outdoors.

PST Sport will be on-site from Monday June 20th and weather permitting, the project is expected to take 10-12 weeks to complete. The project will include full groundworks plus the installation of an enhanced drainage system, perimeter kerbing, fencing, netting and the installation of lighting. The surface will be our Pride 50 artificial turf laid onto a preformed shockpad with sand and a performance layer of SBR.

New FIFA Pitch Huge Boost to St Tiernan’s Community School & Wider Community

St Tiernan's Community School

Sport is an integral part of children’s education and St Tiernan’s Community School have a long tradition of involvement in sports. Investing in top class sports facilities is an investment in children’s health. Fundamentally, all-weather pitches offer so much to schools and have become invaluable, especially in the wet winter months.

PST Sport is delighted to have been appointed as the design and build company for the development of a full-size 6,100 sq/m FIFA Approved artificial grass pitch at St Tiernan’s Community School in Ballinteer for principal contractors, BAM Ireland.

3G pitch drawing for St Tiernan's Community School full-size all weather pitch

This top of the range recreational space will be a huge boost for everyone at the school and indeed, the wider community. Excavation works are expected to start in the coming weeks and weather permitting, the project is expected to take 8-10 weeks to complete.

3G pitch proposed for St Tiernans Community School

The project will include all sub base works and drainage installation. We designed the sub base and drainage system to accommodate the new surfacing solution to deliver the most technologically advanced artificial turf pitch. Ancillary works will include perimeter kerbing, 2.4m high fencing and 3.6m high ball stop netting.

SUPERB 50, our premier artificial product will then be laid onto a preformed shockpad with sand and a performance layer of SBR. Meeting FIFA Standards, SUPERB 50 is an advanced yarn that excels partly due to the C8 polymer used during the manufacturing process and the yarn’s advanced diamond shape makes it strong from every side. Due to the ability of the fibre to “stand up”, ball roll is as close to a high-quality natural turf pitch as possible, whilst the ease with which the yarn allows players to twist and turn, takes football on artificial grass to a new level.

Once complete, the new state-of-the-art surface will be independently tested to FIFA requirements.

The club who play in the Southern League Division One Central is the oldest football club playing in Barnet (founded in 1882).

‘Providing football for all’ lies at the heart of the club’s ethos and this new sporting development further underpins the club’s commitment to the local community.

  • Excavation, drainage and stone base.
  • Installing a shock absorbing layer.
  • Installing our SUPERB 50 artificial grass. With exceptional fiber qualities our SUPERB artificial turf range offers unrivalled levels of durability, resistance, safety and performance, making it the ideal choice for clubs looking benefit from increased playing hours and higher levels of performance and player development.

Highview Athletic FC artificial turf pitch

After years of hard work, Highview Athletic FC’s dream of a world-class synthetic turf pitch is about to become a reality. Works got underway today converting the existing natural grass pitch at the club’s home grounds in Harristown, Co. Kilkenny to a full-size FIFA Approved artificial grass pitch.

Highview Athletic FC continues to grow in numbers each year and the need for a state-of-the-art 3G pitch is badly needed. Recent years have seen a significant increase in playing numbers across all sections of the club.

Given the growth in numbers playing football, Highview Athletic FC’s main goal is to develop high quality facilities for all its members and the community. By designing and constructing the facility to FIFA standards the club can then use the pitch for matches and training, in the evenings and at weekends and also make it available to other clubs in the community.

The project which will take approximately 12 weeks to complete will include full groundworks plus the installation of an enhanced drainage system, perimeter fencing, ball stop netting, spectator railing, lighting and a gravel footpath/community walkway with provisions for lighting which will be accessible at all times and open to the public.

SUPERB is manufactured using the C8 polymer, the market leading yarn in artificial and sports grass worldwide. C8 is a purer polymer making the fibres extremely soft to touch yet incredibly durable and exceptionally resilient.
