The fabulous GAA and Soccer pitches at Coláiste Abbáin have been named Caulfield Park. The official sign will be erected this week in recognition and in appreciation of the sterling work of former teacher Peter Caulfield in securing and developing our brilliant pitches.
Against all the odds Peter negotiated the purchase of the land, the development of the pitches, securing Lotto funding, picked the stones (as did his Dad and brother), erected the goal-stoppers, painted the goal posts, marked the pitches etc. It is most accurate to say that only for the inspirational work of Peter Caulfield we would not have these pitches.
Fittingly, they will now be known as Caulfield Park.
