Another chapter in the illustrious history of  The Markets Field began today as Irelands Soccer Manager Martin O’Neill visited the ground and gave the new playing surface a “run out”. Expressing his delight that the historic ground was soon to become active once again he was loud in his praise of everyone associated with the tremendous effort.

After being briefed on the development plan for the ground he presented match tickets to underage players and watched a skills demonstration.
