Wexford GAA Centre Of Excellence Development Rejected By An Born Pleanála

An Born Pleanála have rejected Wexford GAA’s plans…

Wexford GAA had plans to develop their Centre of Excellence in Ferns and submitted a proposal to Ireland’s planning agency, An Bord Pleanála.

Wexford GAA confirmed the disappointing news that their planning proposal had been rejected during a county board meeting which took place on Tuesday evening.

In an online statement released today, Wexford GAA said:

“Wexford GAA note with disappointment the decision of An Bord Pleanála to refuse permission for the proposed development in Halo Tiles Wexford GAA Centre of Excellence. Planning permission for the addition of new pitches, a spectator area and the development of an entrance from the N11 at the Halo Tiles Wexford GAA Centre of Excellence, which was originally granted by Wexford County Council, was overturned by An Bord Pleanála.

Wexford GAA have at all times liaised with the planning department of Wexford County Council to ensure that we followed regulations and have employed the services of roads and planning expertise in the submission of our application. We also note that the An Bord Pleanála inspector recommended that planning be granted.

We will now liaise with Wexford County Council to review the decision of An Bord Pleanála before considering our next steps. Wexford GAA remains committed to developing a centre of excellence and inclusion that meets the needs of Gaelic games within our county. In 2021, the Halo Tiles COE has been a hub of activity for our club blitzes and games as well as a base for all our county teams and development squads,” they stated.

This is disappointing news for all invovled with Wexford GAA, but hopefully this decision will be changed in the near future.
