Our Vision

A state of the art high performance centre for Monaghan GAA

‘Win a Home in Lanzarote’ is a fundraising campaign being organised by Coiste Bainisti of Monaghan GAA – the organisation responsible for the promotion of Gaelic Games and Irish Culture in County Monaghan, Ireland.  

We are an amateur sporting organisation where volunteers work together to provide games and cultural activities for members from Under 7’s up to adult level. We are small county in terms of geography and population but our clubs and county teams have a proud history of achievement at both provincial and national level.

An aspect of sport is about dreaming and competing at the highest possible level and we in Monaghan GAA in conjunction with our sponsors and proud partners continually strive to improve and offer the best opportunity and experience for our players. With this is mind, we are looking to the future and we want to enhance our existing facilities by developing and creating an ultramodern training centre for our teams from Development Squads up to Senior Inter-County level for both males and females. The funds raised from this exciting draw will be used to develop a high-performance strength and conditioning facility that will be located adjacent to our existing building at Entekra Monaghan GAA Centre of Excellence at Cloghan, Monaghan.

This development will incorporate a state-of-the art gym, fully equipped medical recovery rooms, dedicated physiotherapy treatment rooms, a high-tech auditorium for conducting video analysis, meeting rooms, toilet facilities plus a 200-seater stand and all associated ancillary site development works which will be of great benefit to all who will avail of this facility and will be a huge asset in the preparation of our players and teams at all levels and codes.

This High-Performance Centre will provide the additional facilities to support the development of our players and will be instrumental in optimising the performance of our teams and provide the  training methods required to cater for the individual needs of our players.

Monaghan GAA continually strives to grow and develop the players participating in our games at all levels across our clubs, our schools and Inter-County level, from our senior footballers, hurlers, ladies and camogie players down to our elite under-age teams and including our academy squads. Our full-time Coaching Staff will all be housed in this new centre and will assist them in their work of promoting and developing Gaelic games at Primary School, Secondary School and Development Squads.

The total cost of this ambitious project is approximately €1.5 million and is part of Monaghan GAA’s strategic ambition both on and off the field to cater for the future growth and development of our games for the Gaels on Monaghan.  Please be assured that your contribution, by purchasing a ticket for the ‘Win a Home in Lanzarote’ fund raiser, will go a long way to supporting our long term plans for Entekra Monaghan GAA Centre of Excellence at Cloghan, Monaghan to ensure that we give our players every opportunity to compete to the best of their potential.
