The Club's home ground is St Brendan's Park, where we have our main playing pitch with four dressing-rooms, office, referee's room and public toilets.

Birr GAA Club have planned pitch improvements and new terracing at our main ground in 2010.

We have just acquired c. 6 acres of land on the Kinnitty Road to be developed as a senior training pitch. We are very excited by this development for the long term future of our club.
