Weev on the Ball with First Sports Club Installation

Sports clubs have always played a pivotal role at the heart of local communities. They offer a place where people meet and spend time together – making them the perfect location for a charging hub. Weev launched a new charging hub at Patrick Sarsfield GAA club, marking its first installation at a sports club.

A rapid 60kW charger has been installed at the West Belfast Gaelic sports ground, enabling EV drivers to charge their vehicles in under an hour. It can easily be utilised by visitors on match days, players as they train and, most importantly, by local residents who are valued supporters of the club.

Philip Rainey, CEO of Weev, said:

When we launched Weev, our mission was to bring charging hubs to a wide variety of sites, meeting the needs of EV drivers where it is most convenient to them. That means establishing partnerships in as many different places as possible, especially those areas previously lacking in EV infrastructure.

Based on the Stewartstown Road, Patrick Sarsfield fields multiple men’s and ladies’ football, hurling and camogie teams, serving hundreds of members in the surrounding area.

Patrick Sarsfield Chairperson Eamon McGarrigle added:

We are delighted to partner with Weev as we continue to make Patrick Sarsfield a more sustainable club. As a sports club, we are proud to be part of our community and that’s really what installing the new chargers is all about.

The installation is the latest stage in Weev’s multi-million-pound investment programme that will see thousands of charging points installed over the coming years.
