Looks great alright. Link not working for me, when do they expect it'll be ready and how long will Newbridge be out of action for? (thinking about a potential Leinster QF next year of KE v Dubs)

Timeline as of last December's County Convention:

Quote
The project is expected to take around 29 months, with the completion of the new stand pencilled in for April 2020. The planners are hoping to appoint a design team at the beginning of January 2018.

My understanding is that there will be no games played in Newbridge after the completion of next year's league.


Couple of Qs, the article doesn't state where the money will come from and 2, if the capacity will increase?

Financial breakdown:

Quote
The total cost of the project, as outlined by Padraig McManus at the Kildare GAA County Convention on Thursday night, will come in at around €6.85 million, though the project managers are putting plans in place for the event of the fees rising up to €7.5 million. The construction phase of the project will be the most costly, coming in at an estimated €5.4 million, while VAT at 13.5 pc means that it will rise to just under €6.2 million. The additional costs involved in the project are for professional fees, with McManus stating that they will be around 8.9 pc of the cost, which would amount to €486,000, and when allowing for specialist services and VAT at 23 pc, this would rise to just under €650,000.

The county board aim to raise a third of the money for the redevelopment themselves through fundraising, another third from grants and the rest through loans. They are confident that Croke Park will front up a sizeable amount of money to put towards the project, while they will also look to the government for assistance.

The target is for Club Kildare to raise €2.3 million.

The capacity will rise to 15,000 at the completion of the project. Opening up the entrance down by Ryston which is currently blocked up will ease access from the south of the ground.
There's Seán Brady going in, what dya think Seán?

Good news if it goes ahead. 15000 is a decent capacity and hopefully Kildare will make more progress in the years ahead.

Daniel Flynn not committed to Kildare for next season yet and according to Colm Keys there are others too; After the progress they made this year I'm surprised at that.

Disappointing that Mick O'Grady and Johnny Byrne are opting out this year along with Daniel Flynn being doubtful (not that any individual should be criticised for giving something more important in their life some priority!)

I presume O'Grady and Byrne would both be regarded as big losses by Kildare lads?

Going to be difficult to continue to progress if losing players.
