After years of struggle and behind the scenes activities, the vision of a Community Sports and social Complex became a reality last weekend
with the startup of construction on a six and a half acre site currently used by Leeside AFC at Wallingstown, Little Island.
The complex, designed by top architect Stephen Hyde, includes a first class Soccer pitch, Tennis courts, full changing facilities and a Community Hall. The centre piece is a multi purpose gym, housing such indoor sports as Football, Badminton, Tennis and Basketball.
The cost of the project is in excess of 500,000 The majority of this is funded by the Little Island Industry's Development Company (LIIDC), a representative group of over 30 industries operating on Little Island. Together with the Little Island Community Association and Leeside FC, a Holding company was formed to build the complex. The Holding company is called Wallingstown Amenities and Recreational Company Ltd, (WARC). This partnership must rank as one of the most unique in the country, because it brings together the sporting, residential and industrial inhabitants of Lttle Island, three separate groups with one aim to provide facilities that will be of benefit to all. This is a model example of industry and community living in harmony.
The venture has provided Leeside FC with facilities that are on a par with the best in the country and provide the Community Association with an ultra modern centre. The sod turning ceremony was performed by Bishop of Cork, John Buckley on Saturday last. Among the local dignitaries at the ceremony were the local councillors and local VIP's and MEPs. A reception was held afterwards on the premises of
Henkel Ireland ltd. The site is located directly across from Mitsui Denman.
Mr Barry Condon of the IDA, from whom the site was purchased, has welcomed the development and said he fully supported the project and acknowledged the very significant contribution which the industries were making to the community infrastructure.
