Douglas GAA Car Park

The car park is free and has 80 spaces. The barrier is closed Mon-Fri until 5pm and is open at all other times. It can be used as a drop & go or drop & stay option. Bear in mind during peak times, especially Saturday morning and Tuesdays & Thursdays evenings, Galway’s Lane and the club gets busy, and we recommend using one of the external car parks.

During Winter night time-Drop off and collection at the Sports Hall:

  • Enter via the Sports Hall main door
  • Exit through the Astro or double doors beside the shop
  • All parents must park and go to doors/Astro gate for drop off/collection
  • Mentors from each group need to manage the drop off and collection safely

St Columba’s Boys and Girls Schools

The car park has 120 spaces, we have an arrangement in place with both schools and parking is free of charge.

The following is the  schedule for opening and closing the gates to the school during the playing season.

The following winter schedule will be effective from 06/12/2023

  • Gates to the school, Pitch 1,2,Basketball court will remain closed.

There are three pedestrian gates to the club ,one takes you to our own car park, a second takes you directly to Pitch 1 and the third takes you to Pitch 2 from where you can also access pitch 3 & 4
