Casement Park developments welcomed
Sinn Féin MLA Pat Sheehan has welcomed the statement from the GAA including the Ulster Council to their commitment to develop a world-class stadium at Casement Park.
Mr Sheehan said,
“I welcome the fact that the entire GAA family have come together to support the redevelopment of Casement Park in West Belfast.
“The GAA are determined to have a facility that will serve the entire community of West Belfast with this huge investment.
“This investment has the potential to help revitalise the economic fortunes of West Belfast and bring much needed jobs to the area.
“I also welcome the news that the GAA will consult with all stakeholders including local residents to ensure that this project can proceed in the near future.
“The appointment of an experienced project manager in order to oversee the project is also a positive step forward.
“I would call on community groups, local GAA Clubs, residents, businesses and other local stakeholders to engage with the project team so we can give the people of West Belfast and the greater GAA fraternity a stadium to be proud of.”
