Quote from: Armagh18 on July 12, 2024, 12:40:22 PMWhy should the 50m be dependent on the Euros?

If Euros arent happening then 30k fully covered would be perfect. 

Why should the Dublin government start providing county grounds in the 6 counties? Are they also obliged to do up Windsor Park?

While the 6 counties are run by the British then they should pay for it. Having the Irish government fund everything without any change is madness

The free state gov have offered a conditional contribution towards, funding everything is something you seem to have just invented

Because the Irish Government who are handing over €50m set the terms and conditions for that amount, that they are handing over

And the terms and conditions were towards the redevelopment costs of Casement being a host venue for the 2028 Euro's

If that doesn't happen

It's off the table

Don't think the €50m is contingent on Euros. It was announced as part of a cross border initiative package from Dublin Gov albeit clearly with uncertainly over Euros funding in mind and to put a bit of pressure on Heaton Harris to pay up (bastard never did). I think it's important for Belfast to have a great GAA stadium regardless of Euro28. Ideal scenario would be for our wee county to lose Euros and a class Casement to get built. And maybe even an Icelandic Dentist to lead Ireland to glory (if we can nab one of those 2 automatic qualifying spots).

As I said, can the Dublin government just give Antrim money for a ground. How would that go with other counties wanting grounds or other sports wanting grounds? Perhaps they could give something as an Ulster stadium, but that could be no more than half the amount Stormont gives. The Euro was a good chance to put something extra in on the basis that the British were doing so.

Just to be clear, Antrim have signed over full ownership of Casement Park to Ulster GAA. Any funding being provided for Casement Park is not funding to Antrim GAA.
