During March 2018, SIS Pitches completed a successful project at Presentation Secondary School Thurles, providing the school with a full size-hockey pitch for multi-usage.

PERFECT presentation

The project at Presentation Secondary School Thurles came at the request of the client who was looking for an excellent hockey surface, which was suitable for a multitude of other sports.

As a result, SIS Pitches installed SISTurf Pro Hockey 24 on a prefabricated shockpad. This product is approved by the FIH, with SIS Pitches now recognised as a FIH Certified Manufacturer and FIH Certified Field Builder.

Martin Hehir, Head of Sport at Presentation Secondary School Thurles said that the project was a great success and that he is excited to see the pitch in use.

Mr Hehir observed: 

Presentation Secondary School Thurles were thrilled and excited to work with the SIS Pitches team in the provision of our state of the art multi sport all weather pitch. There was great excitement here at the Presentation Thurles in advance of the surface being completed, and the team at SIS have been a pleasure to work with, professional and worked to schedule throughout the project.  We are delighted with our state-of-the-art synthetic hockey pitch, and would highly recommend SIS Pitches to any school or club in the process of building a new pitch or resurfacing an existing pitch.
