Galway United receives cash injection from Comer brothers to start planning a €20m football academy near Athenry.

The 40-acre site at Mountain South, will be one of the biggest football projects in the state.

€The Comer brothers from Glenamaddy, Brian and Luke, purchased the site for less than €1m from the GAA last year with the intention of building a state-of-the-art complex, including six pitches and 30 apartments for staff and players.

It is understood the Government and UEFA are looking favorably on financially assisting the venture

They have been the main sponsors of Galway since 2013, pumping around €2m since into the running of the club.

Both brothers were at Eamonn Deacy Park to confirm the latest extension of their partnership.
