There was also this article in the Examiner today.

Shambles is too kind of a word to describe this.

Also in further you could not make it up news - Frank won €3,000 in this month's Cork club draw.

God the GAA who make all the right decisions and never make a F*** up, have really done it now! An over budgeted stadium that is convenient to no one - not even the Cork people themselves with a sh1te surface. Jez, if the FAI had done the same you'd be hearing the same old digs about that useless lot.

Not to worry - the GAA are of the people. So it will be the people who will pay for it.

Sure we are paying for it. €20 for a league ticket!

Pitch to be replaced later this year, presumably from that farm the GAA bought in Lusk for this very issue.

The Cork v Clare hurling game moved to pairc ui Rinn thankfully.

The football can still be played in Franks Colosseum

Who is going to front up the extra dough?

Hardstation's question goes to the heart of the matter. The extra £32m required will obviously not be coming from the GAA and the idea that a civil servant might sign it off is fanciful. Without a Stormont executive, the Ulster Council may have see what could be built with the original £77m which was allocated and presumably remains in place. A 25,000 capacity stadium, possibly with two main stands and terraced areas at either end, would be brilliant for Antrim and may yet have to fit the bill at provincial level if the planning permission ever comes through.

The Dubs will pay for it with all the full houses they will have for all their home games in the drive for 10!  ;D

Would be a great stadium for Antrim, but if that is what happens, we might as well stick with Clones at provincial level, at least for finals.

Which wouldn't be a bad thing in itself, if you gave it a brush up. I imagine both would be good venues for Super 8 games as well.

Yeah, but the new stadium will look nice and sure the high attendances at GAA matches will pay for it!

A nice vanity project!
