At our Cappa Lodge training campus we plan to build a 60m long x 30m wide steel clad building that is 18, 000 square feet in size. This building will house an indoor astro turf playing facility with a viewing gallery and reception area. A steel portal frame structure will encompass the building with precast walling internally to act as an all-round hurling wall.

In December 2016 club volunteers, young and old were only too delighted to plant beech trees along the concrete boundary wall to the Lios Anama estate and the public road. These were planted at the request of nearby residents of the Lios Anama estate. Also the Lios Anama name plate and mini wall for the nameplate were reconstructed at the entrance to the estate.
