Has anyone actually run any numbers whatsoever in terms of capacity versus cost.
How many times would a 30k seater stadium be expected to sell out over the next 20/25/30 years versus a 25k seater versus a 35k seater.
How much would a 25k/30k/35k seater costs versus the expected extra revenue they would bring in.
I would say most of the GAA stadia in Ireland rarely if ever hit full capacity.
From what I could find from a quick search PuC in Cork has only sold out to its full capacity of 45k once since it opened as a sports venue and that was for the Liam Millar charity gig.

The following are the attendences for all the championship games in hurling and football

Cork v Limerick 2018 hurling 34,607
Wexford v Waterford 2017 hurling 31,753
Cork v Tipp 2019 2017 hurling 30,274
Tipp v Clare 2017 hurling 28,567
Cork v Kerry 2018 football 27,764
Cork v Waterford 2019 hurling 26,521
Cork v Clare 2018 hurling 24,490
Cork v Kerry 2019 football 18,265
Clare v Wexford 2019 hurling 10,225
Cork v Limerick 2019 football 3,128

So far it looks like a 35k seater would have been sufficient.
Sold out any concerts?

There are just far too many more pressing priorities.  As a tax payer and an Antrim gael I donít want £33mn extra spent on this. Spend it on schools and hospitals, give nurses, doctors and teachers a pay rise. 

Swallow your pride, go back to the drawing board and build an Athletic Grounds size stadium in west Belfast which will have a good atmosphere for Antrim GAA.

Spend whateverís left on Clones.  If we ever get back there, the drive down the road will be part of the craic.

No point stopping at Casement for poor use of government funding, they paid wages for over 3 years to MLA's for feck all, the lack of infrastructure throughout the north is terrible, the links between the M1 and M2 need sorting out and while they are sorting that a bridge linking the M3 would be a good addition also. also getting to Derry on

Building a stadium in Belfast isn't a bad thing, most major cities have multi sports stadiums, we currently have two,  soccer and rugby, why not have a decent one for GAA? yes the plans are probably way over the top but building something like the Athletic grounds isn't looking into the future, if we get to the point that the GAA grows and grows the way we want it, surely some foresight into building a decent modern stadium would be the right thing to do?

25k would be my size of stadium, but the plans and infrastructure needs to be in place to facilitate all needs, safety being the being the main one. Its not going anywhere but Casement

A job well done for United tonight. Sending off made it a much easier contest than it could have been but sometimes playing against 10 men can be difficult. Did the Brugge lad think he was the goalkeeper?

Bruno has fitted in well and he seems to be bringing out the best in the players around him. First start and first goal for Ighalo, a rare sight to see Fred scoring nevermind twice.

Round 16 draw on tomorrow I think. Wouldn't surprise me if United draw Inter Milan.

Closed venue for that draw if it came up! Probably likely to draw Rangers seeing as they know how to navigate through the latter stages of Europe  ;)

Thursday night is the night for football  8) I've read in several places that Bruges are blighted with injuries so I expect us to make it as difficult as possible for ourselves and go out on away goal's....

They must be really blighted by injuries.

A man down early on wouldnít have help then in fairness

This virus is not from the same family of viruses as the seasonal flu so there is no underlying immunity that you're referring to

Which is precisly the problem. When a dose went around 10 years ago it was a first cousin of a variant from 1968 and many older people had some protection as a result. Nobody has any immunity to this, which is why the experts expect 60% to get it.

60% of the world population?

7/1 for Liverpool! Great price

Great price if Man City were out of the competition and there is still the issue of getting past Athletico!

Itís not a great start but if Liverpool get the first goal itíll drop that price significantly. Itís worth 40

No Belfast teams in Reserve this year or have
games been called off? Hopefully games are not off because of county games, 40 players could be missing out over 1 or 2 players & this would be a poor way to start leagues. Can anyone shed any light on this

Maybe the club or the managers don't want to start the new season without their county player? And possibly their teams mates feel the same, just a thought.

Careful where parking.

Mother of 3. Christ.

Medical and psychiatric assistance is being made available to her in custody.

Maybe if these services has been available to this young woman beforehand this would never have happened. Tragedy for everyone concerned.

Not disputing the fact that anyone that randomly kills someone over a parking space isn't barking, but id say that giving someone professional psychiatric help is standard in such cases, as a lawyer defending her, he would do that as a matter of course. But she may have had no problems or signs that gave any indication that she do something like that.

Agreed on the psychiatric help, it seems to be minimal at best, I was in A&E the other week and the amount of people in for what i can only assume from observation for mental health issues was very high, a lot of concerned frighten looking parents, at their wits ends and it seems A&E is their only option, there were no immediate signs of a physical problem.

One has to question why has this not be acted on firstly by the NHS and secondly by even the private sector? If it was my child going through those issues I wouldn't be expecting a lot from the NHS and would go down the private route straight away
