Alex Maskey welcomes Ravenhill announcement
South Belfast Sinn Féin MLA Alex Maskey has welcomed the decision to give the go-ahead to three new stands at Ravenhill.
Alex Maskey said:
“This is obviously a great boost for rugby with the end result being a modern stadium fit to host the many big games that I am sure will come to Ravenhill.
“South Belfast will also benefit from the employment opportunities, especially in the construction industry and the overall economic benefits that will flow from this. Having met with local residents and attended meetings at the grounds, I would be anxious that the concerns of the residents are taken on board by the association and resolved to everyone’s satisfaction.
“Along with the planned works due to take place for Gaelic games at Casement Park and soccer at Windsor Park, this is good news for not only sports in the city but all the businesses that will benefit from the work being done.” CRÍOCH/END
