19 January, 2015 - by Rosie McCorley

Sinn Féin MLA Rosie McCorley has welcomed an announcement by the finance minister that funding will be available for the redevelopment of Casement Park. 

The West Belfast MLA said; 

"I asked the finance minister to clarify the situation regarding funding for the redevelopment of Casement Park. 

"The minister confirmed that even though funding had to be returned when the development was stalled that resources will be available for the Casement redevelopment in the next funding round. 

"This is a welcome announcement. It follows comments from the Minister for Culture, Arts and Leisure, Carál Ní Chuilín, that the redevelopment of Casement remains a Programme for Government commitment. 

"The potential of a multi-million pound new GAA stadium would be a great boost to the local area and I look forward to its redevelopment."
