Field Development Plan Launch: On behalf of the Club Executive and the Field Development Committee, we would like to invite you to an important launch event on Friday 30th March at 7.30pm in the Clubhouse. The aim of the evening will be to launch our planned development at our land in Toor, Killinan, Thurles. We will provide all Thurles Sarsfelds players, mentors and supporters with our plans to develop this green field site. A presentation will be made to inform you with progress to date, proposed staged developments, get feedback on the proposals and explain what we need to do to fund this development plan. Your attendance and support for this event is very important to us as we start to develop our facilities to meet the modern needs of our GAA club. Best Regards, John Cahill, Club Chairperson.
