This weekend’s Connacht Club IFC final will be the last game played in Tuam Stadium before the old stand is demolished.
Last Sunday’s semi-final between Monivea-Abbey and Kilmeena was due to be the final game ahead of the reroofing and refurbishment of the stand, but it will have one last dance after the final between Monivea-Abbey and Castlerea St Kevin’s was confirmed for Tuam Stadium on Saturday at 1.30pm.
The antiquated roof on the stand is to be replaced as part of a major revamp which has been made possible thanks to a donation of €350,000 from the late Joe and Helen O’Toole of O’Toole’s Tuam, who committed to supporting the refurbishment in 2018. Tuam Stadium - which is the spiritual home of Galway football - will remain open for club games during the redevelopment works.
The iconic Tuam Stadium is holding one final bash. It has been confirmed that the 2023 Connacht Intermediate Football Final will be held in the legendary Tuam Stadium on Saturday 25th at 1:30PM. @Galway_GAA @RoscommonGAA @maroonwhitepod#oneclubonecommunity #moniveaabbeyabhu pic.twitter.com/I1v8zZrNfB— Monivea Abbey GAA Club (@moniveaabbey18) November 20, 2023
