All Weather Pitch at Oatlands College

Status: Under Construction – Construction started August 2023


The site is located in the existing Oatlands College grounds, Mount Merrion, Blackrock County Dublin. The site comprises an existing grass playing pitch located to the west of the Oatlands College and east of Oatlands Primary School. The proposed all-weather pitch (135m x 86m) shall include third generation synthetic surfacing, floodlighting, fencing, retaining walls, ballstop netting, temporary changing facilities, tree planting and all ancillary works. The site is approximately 1.65 Hectares.  The proposed all weather pitch will be designed as an inclusive and flexible facility. It will be certified in accordance with the FAI/IRB & GAA requirements to ensure the facility is used by as many sporting groups as possible. The existing grass pitch is being used by the schools and some clubs for training. In wet weather, the pitch can get saturated and be deemed unplayable. An all-weather pitch with floodlighting will allow this area to be used much more intensively by the schools and local clubs. 


A Part 8 was undertaken and approved for this project, please see link below for further information.
