Whyte welcomes new GAA pitches for Mallusk

North Belfast GAA Carl Whyte

SDLP North Belfast Westminster candidate councillor Carl Whyte has welcomed two new GAA pitches for Mallusk.


Council has confirmed work on the pitches at Mallusk Playing Fields should be completed by February 2025.

Councillor Whyte said:

“I have engaged with local GAA clubs and council over the past year to see new GAA facilities established in North Belfast and I am delighted that new additional pitches will be in place at Mallusk. These new pitches will go some way to addressing the demand in this area but there is a lot more to do, including the creation of new additional GAA pitches in both the Belfast City Council district and wider North Belfast constituency.

“The council has also stated that the pitches strategy will not be ready until March 2025 – this is too long a delay and I along with others will work with council staff to make sure this process is concluded in a more timely manner. The growth of Gaelic games in the city has been exponential in recent years and the level of facilities provision must meet this increased demand.”
