Louth County GAA ground development welcomed by Cllr Ruairí Ó Murchú
Louth Sinn Féin councillor Ruairí Ó Murchú has welcomed the decision taken by councillors at Louth County Council’s December meeting to formally dispose of lands in Dundalk to the Louth County Board of the GAA.
Cllr Ó Murchú said:
“This is a very positive development for the GAA in Louth and I am delighted that this land on the outskirts of Dundalk will be developed for the use of Louth GAA.
“When fully developed, this county ground will see an investment in the region of €8 million in Dundalk and I hope it will lead to further development in that area.
“This means that Louth county teams will no longer have to cede home advantage due to lack of grounds.
“Cumann Lúthchleas Gael contributes immeasurably to our communities; indeed, in many rural communities, it is the sole driver of community activities.
“I am proud that Louth County Council has supported this project and in doing so has supported every GAA volunteer, player and enthusiast.”
