The Finn Valley Centre’s origins are in the award winning Finn Valley Athletic Club, National Club of the Year 2014/2015, and is the result of lifelong work by Mr. Patsy McGonagle Irish Olympic Team Captain and his team, who have developed the facility into what is now a first class sports and community space with something for everyone.
