The future of Portarlington GAA club’s underage wing is under threat following an unfavourable Circuit Court decision.
The Court ruled that the club does not have a right to use the land they’ve been using to play underage games for the past 26 years.
The land in question is adjacent to the club grounds and has hosted underage games since 1981, but the Circuit Court said on Monday that the club has no right to a sporting lease.
The ten acres of land are owned by building developer Patrick McCormack and have been the subject of dispute since 2001.
The club will find out the full ramifications of the verdict when a more detailed ruling regarding costs in made on July 9.
