The skyline at Buccaneers has taken on a new look following the recent installation of 91 solar panels on The Bounty’s roof. These panels can generate up to 38KW of energy at the home of Buccaneers Rugby Football Club. Club President Lorna Stuart Trainor says it is expected to reduce costs significantly over the coming years in addition to contributing towards a sustainable environment.

The panels were installed by Solarstream from Carlow while Electric Skyline from Claremorris are currently fitting LED bulbs to the floodlighting system at Dubarry Park. This green initiative at Buccaneers has been supported by an SEAI grant and the Athlone & Castlerea Credit Union’s Community Support Fund and the club gratefully acknowledges their benevolence.
