The development of playing fields and facilities has also been a priority with the club. Our original grounds at Urbleshanny purchased in 1954 is now a top class all-weather playing field, developed alongside a spacious all-in Sports Complex and changing facilities.

In 1995 the club purchased additional grounds at Kilmore, an earlier rented home of Scotstown football and developed three further top class playing fields, training facilities and changing rooms. The most recent project undertaken by the club was the development of a Social Centre at St Mary’s Park and this opened to great success in 2002. All these developments were financed at various stages by specific fund-raising campaigns and in this context we must not forget the famous Scotstown Carnival of the 1950s and 60s which was not only a great source of funding for club development at that time, but was also a major social event in the county and surrounding counties.
