Development of the Community Park continued during the 90’s with major development on the GAA pitch. The next stage was to have the GAA pitch vested in the GAA, the pitch could now accommodate inter club championship games. Plans were put in place to have the club vested and the official opening came about in 1996. A very special day for the club when the then President of the GAA the late Jack Boothman was in attendance to officially open the pitch. Also in attendance on the day were members of Sligo GAA County Board including Sligo GAA County Board Chairman Enniscrone native Joe Queenan.
St Brendan’s School Band opened up events with displays of underage football & Hurling this was followed by Senior Football challenge between Sligo and Leitrim. All sporting enthusiasts from all over the parish attended the opening.
Ladies football was introduced to the Club in 1993 and still attracts girls of all ages with a number of accolades coming to the club.
A soccer pitch home to Calry Bohs is adjacent to the GAA pitch. Surrounding the soccer pitch is a running track which is also home to Calry Athletic Club. An astro turf facility was introduced in recent years. We owe a great deal of gratitude to the men and women of the parish who had this vision in the early 70s.
