Specialist Fencing Contracts Ltd recently completed work at Kevin Lynch’s hurling club. Kevin Lynch’s hurling club are a hurling club based in Dungiven, County Derry providing teams from u6 to senior. They are a busy club who require their pitch to be in the best of condition at all time.

Repair to storm damaged nets at St Marys Banagher GAC

St Marys Banagher GAC unfortunately suffered some storm damage earlier this year. The storms damaged their ball stop nets and Specialist Fencing Contracts were asked to quote a price for repair work. We were awarded the job and started the repair job. Here are some pictures showing the extent of the damage.

Hydebank Pitches – Lisburn and Castlereagh Council

Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council got in touch with us here at Specialist Fencing Contracts about the design and fit of a Baseball roof net for a baseball diamond. We tendered for the job and were delighted to be chosen for this unique task. There aren’t many baseball diamonds in Ireland and we are very excited to have been involved in this project!

Hydebank Pitches – Lisburn and Castlereagh Council

The Baseball Roof net was needed at Hydebank Pitches and they needed the netting to be 3m high- 4m high.

When we started to work onsite we were also asked to supply and fit a backstop fencing system which we were delighted to do. We also adapted to changes which the council wanted to make in the middle of the project. We extended the front post and backstop fencing to make it higher. It ended up being 6m high!

This is just another example of how we at Specialist Fencing Contracts work hard and always endeavour to give the client exactly what they need.

The council then asked as us to install a handrail for spectator at the back of the diamond.

Gaelic portable goals fitted at Primary School

Specialist Sports Equipment Ltd are delighted to have fitted a set of portable Gaelic portable goals for a Primary School. St John Bosco Primary School is located in Portglenone in Northern Ireland and the principle invited us to kit them out with some sports equipment that they needed.

The Gaelic portable nets fitted at the primary school have been set up so that they can be used in the school playground and removed when not in use.

We also were able to supply and fit a set of Basketball nets in the same area. This allows the school to get the most out of their playground area. The basketball nets and posts were fixed in place rather than being portable.

Here are some photographs from the project:

St John Bosco Primary School

At Specialist Sports Equipment Ltd we love making sports accessible for children. It is great to see lots of kids getting the opportunity learn different sports at school and learning how to play as a team. St. John Bosco Primary School also maximised their playground area which is now kitted out for basketball and can be quickly converted for Gaelic when the team want to practice.

To see our extensive range of sports equipment, including football nets, team shelters and more, which we can supply and fit click here. To enquire about any Gaelic equipment for your Gaelic grounds, or school in Ireland feel free to contact Dominic at office@specialistsportsequipment.com .
