Stillorgan-Rathfarnham RFC - Development of Heavey Technology Park - News - February 2020...

Club Chairman Ross Durnin provides an update of progress on the development of Heavey Technology Park - the new home of Stillorgan-Rathfarnham RFC at Tibradden Road, Rathfarnham. 

Dear Fellow Club member / Supporter,

Stillorgan Rathfarnham RFC (formerly known as Salesians RFC) was founded in 1973 and has recently grown to encompass Rathfarnham and surrounding areas. It is with pride that I am writing to you to today to update you on a pivotal point in the Club’s development and specifically the development of Club Grounds on Tibradden Road, Rathfarnham (DLR Co.Co. Plan Ref D16A/0955).

The Club has recently secured €150,000 of funding through the Sports Capital Programme to develop our Club Grounds. It is the intention of our Club’s Executive and Strategic Committees to develop three pitches, floodlights, changing facilities and a car park on site at Tibradden Road by September 2021 (1st Phase of Development) with a two storey clubhouse to follow as soon after as possible. The development of playing facilities will allow the club centralize our minis and adult playing base in one location and help the club deepen our roots within the Rathfarnham and wider South Dublin community.

Securing the sports capital funding represents the culmination of nearly 5 years of work by various Club members. In addition to the sports capital grant (€150,000), the Club’s Strategic Committee has also secured a loan facility from the IRFU (€100,000) and has recently raised €35,000 in private donations to fund the development. Our funding has now reached €285,000 in total and we would like to sincerely thank all of you for your investment of both time and funds to building our future.

In order to deliver the 1st Phase of Development, we estimate that a total of €300,000 is required. This leaving us with a shortfall of €15,000 which we are hoping to raise over the next 6 weeks to commence construction. In order to meet our goal, it is our hope that Club members and supporters can make a one-time donation of €150 or more as a voluntary contribution to the development. Your contribution will have a direct impact on what we can provide for our members in the future. Where people can contribute €250 or more, as an Approved Sports Body, the Club can further avail of an additional income tax rebate doubling the original contribution.

The development of the Club grounds is both a fantastic challenge and an opportunity to be part of something special and will always stand as a point of pride. It will be on these pitches where our children can learn the skills and values of the game of rugby. It will be a home ground where our older age groups can host opponents and it will be a clubhouse where we can all meet to be part of a club and enjoy the social side of the game.

Making a contribution is of course completely voluntary and subject to your personal financial circumstances. The details of all contributors and non-contributors will be strictly confidential and a decision to contribute or not will in no way impact on your standing in the Club.

It is only through the combined efforts of our entire community that we will be able to develop something that we can all be proud of, which will serve our children and later generations of people from the Stillorgan Rathfarnham area.

I have included a link below to an online payment portal on the Club’s website that you can use to make a donation. If you have any queries in relation to this project, or are able to support the development of our Club Grounds in other ways, please contact any of the individuals listed below.

I look forward to writing to you in the future with updates on the development of our Club Grounds.

Yours faithfully,

Ross Durnin
