Sinn Féin MLA Rosie McCorley has welcomed the publication of report into the redevelopment of Casement Park in west Belfast. 

Ms McCorley said; 

"I welcome the publication of the Project Assessment Review into the redevelopment of Casement Park. 

"Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín said she would commission and deliver this report into this important project and that is what she has done. 

"It is encouraging that the report has found that transforming Casement Park into a strategic regional stadium is achievable. 

"I welcome the fact that independent technical advisors have now confirmed in this report that safety has always been a priority for the GAA in this project and the recommendation that a new chair of the safety technical group be appointed. 

"West Belfast has suffered from years of neglect and under-investment. The potential of a multi-million pound state of the art GAA stadium would be a great boost to the local economy and beyond. 

"The report has found that there is work to do to ensure this important project is completed and I would encourage everyone involved to carry out that work so that the stadium redevelopment can go ahead in consultation with the local community."
