Ballykinlar, County Down.

Sport & Leisure


McGurk Architects successfully obtained planning permission for the redevelopment of Ballykinlar GAC and adjacent Ministry of Defence lands to become the new home for Down GAA. The development provides state-of-the-art sports facilities for Down GAA and the local community. Facilities include a stadium, changing facilities, 4 full size GAA playing fields, an indoor Multi Use Games Area (MUGA), fitness suite, multi-purpose spaces, carparking and site works. A museum and interpretative centre in the stadium building will reflect the shared history of Ballykinlar. This will include Down GAA’s rich history and the site’s usage as a training base for WW1 military personnel and thereafter as an internment camp during the Irish Civil War.
