Why was the current pitch not kept in use to actual planning for a new stadium was approved?

This is the $100,000,000 question. Even if certain parts of the stand had structural problems you had all the terraces and the floodlights etc and the pitch itself which should have been used all along. It makes no sense and nobody has been called out about this.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Didn’t want to pay the insurance I believe was the reason it closed thinking it was getting knocked down that winter

But when it become evident the issue was going to stretch long term why not close of the stand, reinsurance the stadium and progress with fball, I seen a Derry, Antrim U-21 game from the stand either the Yr they were closing it or Yr before. It was fairly old, but only a small part of the stadium. If no insurance how did the clubhouse keep running.?

Because they ripped the ground apart for every bit of scrap they could find.
The twats.

Yeah stripped the metal and left it so that you couldn’t use the ground safely

Has anyone asked the great McGeehan this??

Mcgeehan was sleeping at the wheel. Too busy plotting a route to replace Danny Murphy. Locking horns with Ryan Feeney. Two bluffers of the highest order.

Can anyone tell me why it HAS to be spent on stadia and nowhere else? 
isn't it because Originally the money was to buld a super stadium but soccer and rugty built teir own grounds and the remainder is left over for the GAA to update their stadium or build a now one and the money was ring fenced

Fair play to you responding to a post from 2010. You've clearly taken time to consider your response.
