Over the years we have gained a reputation for excellence, being trustworthy, reliable, highly skilled, respectful and passionate about what we do.
Here’s what some of our satisfied customers had to say…
Larkview FC, Whelan Park
“I was first introduced to PST Sport by the extremely helpful Derek Moore of Stella Maris Football Club. When I got the opportunity to fund an all-weather pitch in Whelan Park on behalf of Larkview FC I sought a number of quotations. I was amazed at how unresponsive and/or unprofessional most of the potential suppliers tenders were. There was only one company that tendered properly, could answer all questions, could meet a high specification and that ticked all the boxes, including cost efficiency – namely PST Sport.
This was a difficult job as we wanted much more than a square pitch, we wanted to maximise the total Astro area, move lighting, install fencing around corners, different height ball stop netting, tarmac, satisfy neighbours and tidy up general services. PST looked after everything from design to completion, even when we spotted opportunities to enhance the design during installation, as will happen in a volunteer run club, PST always had a practical, cost efficient solution with no fuss, there was no attempt to overcharge for extras.
The project was delivered on time despite some bad weather at a crucial time and the very few snags were dealt with efficiently and in some cases without us even spotting them. PST clearly took pride in the work and took full responsibility from start to finish
Over the life of the installation I have come to implicitly trust PST and have huge faith in their work. PST were an excellent choice for us as a partner to develop the club’s facilities, their passion matches our own ambition to have the very best.”

Le Chéile Post Primary School (full size GAA pitch)
“Glasgiven Contracts Limited secured through a competitive tender process the contract for Tyrrelstown Educational Campus in Tyrrelstown Dublin 15 in July 2015. This 1000 pupil post primary school includes the development of a full size GAA 3G playing surface. Following successful negotiations, PST Sport were awarded the 3G GAA pitch contract.
From the outset, it was obvious that PST Sport held the in-house expertise and technical ability to successfully deliver this element of our project. The nature of the site presented some unique challenges. This included a “live” stream which traversed the pitch, overhead ESB lines that had to be diverted prior to construction and the rather poor existing ground conditions. PST Sport took a lead in the design development of the pitch and proactively engaged with all stakeholders and brought to the table cost effective and workable solutions without compromising on safety, quality or programme. Innovative measures developed by PST Sport included use of geotextiles and sub base drainage to ensure the final surface level of the pitch will be correct and maintained for the lifetime of the pitch.
PST Sport completed this project safely on time, within budget and to the highest standards. They worked with Glasgiven Contracts Limited to add value to the project by ensuring the 3G pitch is certified to GAA, IRFU and FIFA standards. The standard of finish achieved by PST Sport on the pitch is exemplary and is a credit to the management and operatives of PST Sport who we found to be courteous, knowledgeable and driven.
Glasgiven Contracts Limited formed an excellent relationship with PST Sport during this project and would have no hesitation in employing PST Sport on any of our future projects. Indeed we are currently working with PST Sport on a live tender containing a full size 3G pitch. We look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with PST Sport into the future.”

Cherry Orchard FC
“On behalf of Cherry Orchard Football Club, I have no hesitation in providing a business reference for PST Sport. Following an extremely competitive tender process, PST Sport were the successful bidder in providing our Club with a full size all weather football pitch.
As a satisfied customer Cherry Orchard Football Club can testify to PST Sports ability to provide a full turnkey solution from start to finish. Including all aspects of the project from the above and below ground works, fencing and ball stop netting, flood lights and a FIFA certified all weather playing surface.
From the first time we met Paul, Colin, Ger and the lads from PST Sport we were impressed with their efficient and professional manner – an approach that not only inspired confidence, but generated the results we were looking for.
By partnering with PST Sports the Cherry Orchard Football Club have been able to achieve our aim with the minimum of fuss. This is exemplified by the company’s willingness to work with us and to find solutions to any problems that arose during the process. PST Sports ability to provide the facility we now have available to us together with their helpful and knowledgeable staff, confirms to us that we found the right people.
On the basis of our experience, I would strongly recommend PST Sport to any prospective client where their capacity to deliver will satisfy the highest expectations.”
Chairman, Cherry Orchard Football Club
“When Mullingar RFC decided to build 1 full size and 1 training size synthetic grass pitches to accompany our natural grass fields. It was decided to build to a specification that meets the three primary codes i.e. World Rugby, GAA and FIFA.
After a competitive tender process among eight companies a detailed post tender analysis was conducted. The tender was scored with a strong focus on product quality and technical ability.
PST Sport emerged as the successful contractor and we are delighted that decision was reached.
PST Sport delivered a first class installation on time and within budget and demonstrated excellent technical ability.
Feedback from players and coaches has been impressive. The Irish Rugby Team trained on the pitch for the week prior to the Ireland v England Six Nations match in 2016. Several players commented it was the best artificial grass surface they have played on and Joe Schmidt compared the pitch to the Twickenham surface.
I would highly recommend Colin, Ger and their team to any organisation looking to install a synthetic grass facility.”
Cahir Park FC
“We recently developed a full sized all weather soccer pitch at our grounds in Cahir. From the initial tendering process (we received submissions from eight different companies) it became abundantly clear that PST Sports were the most professional of all of entities vying for the project and the most passionate about our project.
As a club we went to extraordinary lengths to understand the technical aspects of all-weather surfaces, rubber infill and lighting. PST offered us the most transparent and independent verification of their products. In addition we took up a number of references on PST’s previous projects, some reference points were provided by PST but others we took up ourselves including one from Chelsea FC in Cobham Surrey. Without exception each reference was exemplary. We chose a surface that was demonstrably of a much higher specification than the competition (bourn out by the pitch being certified FIFA Quality only last week) and in addition offered exceptional value.
The construction phase ran like clockwork and the very small in number ‘snags’ were quickly remedied. We are delighted with our completed project, thanks to advice from PST unnecessary cost was avoided and the project completed for less than what had been agreed under contract. In closing I would have no hesitation in recommending PST to any organisation considering such a project and would welcome them to Cahir to witness firsthand the completed facility of which we are proud.”
Stella Maris FC
“We at Stella Maris Football Club have no hesitation in providing a business reference for PST Sport. Following a stringent pre qualification process followed by a Tender Evaluation Phase, which was fully endorsed by our National Governing Body, the Football Association of Ireland, PST Sport have been a successful tendering contractor on multiple projects over the last number of years for Stella Maris Football Club.
Stella Maris Football Club embarked on a full re development of our facilities at Richmond Road in Dublin. To undertake such a project required a contractor to participate with the ethos of a partner in the project. We are delighted to confirm that PST Sport have shown un-rivaled commitment to the delivery of the project as they expanded beyond the project requirements to deliver a best in class facility for our young club members.
PST Sport are a lateral thinking company that found solutions in a cost effective manner whilst never jeopardizing the standards of the project. PST Sport excelled in pricing, project management, product quality, and delivery of the solution within budget and timeframe.
As a satisfied customer we have experienced the abilities of PST Sport in providing a full turnkey solution from above and below ground Civil Engineering, a state of the art UEFA Approved Flood lighting system, and a FIFA 2 Star graded full size All Weather playing surface, the latter was specified as a FIFA 1 Star in the contract but such was the quality of the project works provided by PST Sports the facility independently passed as a 2 Star grade, endorsing further the workmanship of PST Sports.”
Derek Moore, Stella Maris FC, Dublin
Intermediate School Killorglin
“PST Sport installed a new all weather pitch In Killorglin recently. We opened in January 2014 and all participants are very pleased with the surface. It is far superior to our previous surface which PST took up and relaid on a grit pitch adjacent to the main pitch. We are also pleased with the workmanship on the grit pitch. Their pricing was also very competitive, and they remained true to their price. We were very pleased with the installers, both in the level of communication we had with them and the workmanship.”
Dragon’s Den Killorglin
Crumlin United FC
“We had PST Sport re-surface our old astro pitch in December 2013. We were blown away by the results. The new pitch was a massive step up in quality and all visitors to the pitch, especially players, have been full of praise for the new facility. They (PST Sport) were very easy to work with and we were very impressed with their efficiency and work ethic .The pitch is something we are proud of at the club and we are very happy with our decision in choosing PST Sport.”
Martin Loughran, Crumlin United FC, Dublin
Bride Rovers GAA Club
“PST sport completed a 60/40 metre astro turf for us in 2015. This was a sports council funded project, so PST sport had to compete with 2 other companies for the job. They did the work from the underground drainage, right through every stage to the wiring of the lights. All the work was done to a very high spec. and we have no problem with any aspect of the work sense. The project was completed on time and ready for immediate use.
From the outset I as chairman of the club, found the company very professional, efficient and true to their word at all times. It was a pleasure dealing with Colin, Ger and all their skilful staff, and I would have no hesitation recommending them for similar projects. I would encourage prospective customers to come to Bride Rovers GAA in Rathcormac and view our Astro turf complex.”
Bride Rovers GAA Club
Skryne GAA Club
“PST carried out the installation of surfacing to 2 No. Synthetic Grass Pitches for Skryne Gaelic Football Club in February/March 2016. The pitches each measure 40 m x 25 m and can be used together to give a length of 80 m x 25 m. The pitches have been subject to a high level of usage over the past 10 months and all who use it are very complimentary of the surface and general layout.
During the construction of the foundations and drainage etc by a local contractor PST Management personnel made themselves available for consultation with the Groundworks contractor and their advice was invaluable in obtaining a successful outcome for the scheme. Also PST gave expert advice on the selection of the surfacing and location of pitch markings so as to optimise pitch usage. In general , based on my 30 years experience in civil engineering and road construction with the National Roads Authority I consider that PST have a high level of technical competence and experience in all areas relevant to synthetic grass pitch construction.
I would have no hesitation in recommending PST for similar work. While in our case they were responsible for the surfacing only I am aware of their capabilities in delivering full packages including groundworks, fencing and lighting and again I would have no doubt that they would deliver a top quality product where they take on full responsibility.”

Doheny GAA Club
“PST Sport recently completed the installation of a new Astro Turf Complex for the Doheny Gaa Club at the Sam Maguire Park Dunmanway.
This contract was carried out in a very professional manner and completed on time to a very high standard.
As a club we were extremely happy with every aspect of their work and it is with complete confidence that we can recommend this company in the highest terms.”

Doheny Gaa Club
The Park Club London
“As the Managing Director and owner of the Park Club, I have been at the forefront of innovative sports facility development for 45 years. In this time, the Hogarth Group opened the first 6 court squash club, with three courts on top of three, in Lambton Place. Following this, we opened the Hogarth Club in 1980, which was the first American style gym in the UK and kicked off the Health Club revolution we see today. The Park Club followed in 2000 and saw an outdoor pool, now de rigeur in all top –end family clubs.
Our latest idea is to combine sports provision to the general public alongside our top-end brand. This means only the finest quality facilities can be considered. Having been out to tender for a 9,000m synthetic grass pitch, I contracted the job to PST for a number of reasons:
- Technical knowledge
- Hands-on approach
- Can do attitude
- Evident quality of product
The job has been delivered on time and on budget, without any issues whatsoever.
The acid test of any Contractor’s performance is would I use them again? In this case, I will and I am. We are installing two further playing areas in January 2017, which I would normally have put out to tender again, but given the experience with PST, I’m not bothering and am going with Colin and his team.”

Crosserlough GAA Club
“PST Sport installed our full size GAA 3G pitch in June 2015 and all members of the club are delighted with the outcome. Ger and Colin (Directors of PST Sport) were extremely supportive all the way through and were always on hand to give advice when we needed it. I would have no problem with recommending PST Sport to any club looking to install a top quality 3G pitch.”

Deane Turner Associates
“We are a firm of consulting engineers and we have worked on various projects with PST Sport since 2010. We have found PST Sport to be very professional in carrying out their work and duties. PST Sport is extremely committed to carrying out their work to a very high professional standard. We would have no issues recommending PST Sport for any of our future projects involving all weather facilities.”
Dean Turner Associates
“OSA have worked with PST Sport on a number of all weather pitches and sporting facilities over the past few years including:
- 2013 – Spa NS, Tralee – All weather playing court and perimeter fencing
- 2014 – Tralee Community College – All weather playing pitch with perimeter fencing & floodlighting
- 2015 – St. Pats GAA Club , Blennerville, Co. Kerry – All weather playing pitch with perimeter fencing / ball stop netting & floodlighting
We can state with confidence that we found PST Sport to be a professional , efficient and reliable company to work with. Their crews were hardworking, diligent and dedicated and displayed a detailed knowledge of their products and their installation techniques.PST Sport were entirely familiar with current procurement procedures and provide comprehensive submissions and documentation. We would have no hesitation in recommending the work of PST Sport and we will continue to include their name in future tenders with this Practice.”
Stephen O’Sullivan, O’Sullivan Architecture, Kerry
Dublin City Council
“The Recreation Services of Dublin City Council have worked closely with Colin, Ger, Stephen and the rest of the team at PST Sport over the last number of years. We have found their work ethic and quality of delivery second to none. Not only have their pitch installs improved the landscape of Dublin’s Inner City areas, but PST’s products have been a very effective social tool by increasing the number of children and young adults taking part in local sporting activities, we see this as an excellent distraction from anti-social behaviour.”
David O’Donovan, Dublin City Council
St Pat’s GAA Club
“Most sports clubs are run by volunteers. PST Sports’ point of difference is they appreciate this and take clubs through the development process answering queries and teasing out options to suit the site and budget. While their pricing was competitive it is the standard of their previous work that ultimately won them our contract. For clubs to invest in large capital projects they must have absolute faith in the workmanship and capability of the contractor. Nobody wants a botch job on their hands in an volunteer organisation. I would be delighted to recommend PST Sport and we are proud that our fundraising efforts were well spent on such a well finished facility that will serve us long into the future.”
James Costello, Chairperson
Youghal United FC
“We had our all weather training facility resurfaced in August of 2013. It measures 1640 square metres. The previous surface was 13 years old and was in poor condition. It was very hard and starting to tear in places. I was heavily involved from the start of the project, applying for the grant for the re-surfacing, to the installation of the new surface. After getting 3 quotes and in consultation with our engineer we opted for PST Sport to resurface the facility. This was a decision that I am delighted was made. Dealing with Mr. Colin Teahon was of PST Sport was very easy. He was very professional and always available to take a call for either advice or to answer a query or worry we had.
We asked PST Sport for advice in taking up the old surface. They were excellent in helping us doing that, which was a great help. How that part of the project would go had been a worry for us. The installation itself was again very professional and timely. The new surface has been brilliant. It is such a pleasure for members and private hirers alike to play on. Two years on and we are still delighted with it. I, along with the Committee of Youghal Utd AFC, would highly recommend the whole team at PST Sport for the excellent job and surface that they have provided us with.”
Damien O’Brien, Chairperson, Youghal United AFC
