Exciting day for Antrim and Ulster Gaels. Well done all.

Not really. Should never have gone ahead in that location. Shambles

How many times per year will it get a 34,500 crowd?

A fella on Twitter under a BBC report said it was would be filled every week as it won't just be county matches but will also be used for junior championship finals etc  ;D

Let the gravy train commence. Will be like Croker where every skanger in the country had their fingers in the pie and it made millions for Sean Quinn despite supplying nothing.

Great to see Nichola Mallon and her SDLP team push this through. Shows you what can be done when we get the right people into the right positions.
Let’s hope it is more successful (and lawful) than the previous one that Mark H Durkan and his SDLP team pushed through that ended in an embarrassing shitshow.

Ha!  ;D

Maybe once, if the Ulster final is played there. I doubt any other game would sell out there. At a push, an Ulster semi depending on the teams involved.

It would be hard for anyone to defend Caral Ní Chuilin’s role in this saga. She is one of a number of people who failed this project.
Attacking her appearance like you have paints a particular picture of you however. And it isn’t good.

Come on , a good visit to the hairdresser's would have done her no harm . Work colleague of mines used to call her that . I giggled at the time , I might have poor sense of humour I'll give you that , but I'd not stretch it

Hate going to games in Casement Park, brutal to get out off and no decent pubs, Always preferred Clones. It be full for fball for a ulster final and maybe 1 semi with Armagh to me a better evenue for the other semi. How many concerts would it get in a year. Basically like Croke Park, slap on the middle of a residential area.

Hard to get excited when every single facet of this is wrong.

- Not the stadium Antrim need.
- Not a stadium Ulster need.
- A complete waste of public money that is badly needed elsewhere.
- A stadium that will only drive up ticket prices.
- A process that alienates the neighbours before it starts.

Well done Ulster Council. I don't think you could have f**ked it up any more. Yet you continue to insist on travelling down this path.
