PRESIDENT of Ireland Michael D. Higgins was the the special guest as Drumragh Sarsfields officially opened their facilities at Clanabogan Park on Saturday .

A club statement said: "Today was a truly great day in our club's history as we welcomed president of Ireland Michael D.

Higgins to mark the official opening of our hub at Clanabogan Park.

"It is simply impossible to describe the huge amount of hard work and effort that our members have given so freely in order to get us to this point. Not only in making our building and grounds look immaculate today but in having the vision and the dream, almost 20 years ago, to develop our own home at Clanabogan.

"We will be forever proud to have listened to the President of Ireland speak so highly of our club, our players, our community and all our volunteers." The club's state-of-the-art facilities include a training pitch, sports hall and an indoor/outdoor gym.

Work on the new clubrooms began in 2008 and the building represents a significant investment in the future of Clanabogan and has become a centre for the community as well as providing unrivalled facilities for the club's teams.

The clubrooms and pitches that some may take for granted have been the product of hard work so the club are happy to open them to the local community.

Over the last number of years, the club have been filling in the remaining pieces of the jigsaw. This has seen the completion of external lighting, car parking, fencing, floodlighting, turnstiles and other smaller development works.
