A home of their own came one step closer for the Shannon Gaels Gaelic Athletic Association Club as groundbreaking was held on Saturday for their new training field in Frank Golden Park.
The first phase of construction at the College Point park is expected to cost $1.7 million. Funding was provided by Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Attending the ceremony were some of the 200 club members, Councilman Paul Vallone and Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski.
The club offers Gaelic football, hurling and camogie, a form of hurling, and is open to all.
