The  €3 million Air Dome project at the Connacht Centre of Excellence in Bekan will be completed in early September.

Construction on the Air Dome in Bekan commenced last October but was halted in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Work on the facility, which will be the largest indoor sports facility of its kind in the world, recommenced last week after the country moved into phase 1 of the restrictions being eased.

The dome will be 150m x 100m and 26m high with a full size pitch, gym, testing area and office space inside. It will complement the provincial body’s existing facilities in Bekan.

Connacht GAA Secretary John Prenty is optimistic the pitches will be completed by next month with the entire project set to be finished in September.
