Sinn Féin MLA Rosie McCorley has welcomed the beginning of the consultation by the GAA into the new stadium at Casement Park.

 Ms. McCorley said,

 “I welcome the commitment by the GAA to hold a two tier consultation process into the development of a new stadium at Casement Park.

 “I am particularly pleased that the GAA will be engaging in a 20 week community consultation as it is important that we proceed with the needs and views of the community at the heart of all decisions eventually taken.

 “The new state-of-the-art stadium has the potential to be an economic driver for West Belfast, and the GAA has a proven record in delivering sporting and cultural activities which contribute to the local economy.

 “Anyone wishing to receive a copy of the working document should email [email protected]

 “I would appeal to the entire community to engage with the GAA in the consultation so that we can move to the next stage of this project by delivering a 21st century stadium for the people of West Belfast and further afield.”
