Sinn Féin delegation meets GAA on Casement Park
Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has said that the Casement Park redevelopment will go ahead following a meeting with Ulster GAA.
The West Belfast MP said:
“Today, Ministers Michelle O’Neill, Declan Kearney and Conor Murphy along with Sinn Féin Sport, Culture and Arts spokesperson Sinead Ennis and myself as MP for West Belfast met with the Ulster GAA on the Casement Park redevelopment.
“It is more than ten years since the Casement Park project was announced and more than seven years since Antrim Gaels had a home.
“We took the opportunity today to reemphasise our party’s continued support for the Casement Park redevelopment.
“And I am delighted that Michelle O'Neill, Conor Murphy and Declan Kearney gave a firm commitment that the Executive will deliver on this vital project.
“The development of Casement Park is a priority for Sinn Féin and we have brought it directly to the Executive.
“A regenerated Casement Park will be a first-class asset to the further development of Ulster and Antrim GAA.
“It will also bring enormous social and economic benefits to the local community of West Belfast.
“Gaels and the people of West Belfast deserve so much better than the current derelict site."
