GAA’s Casement Park Redevelopment to be Delayed Unitl Late 2013
February 9, 2012
The redevelopment of Casement Park which was expected to be continued has been put off until the end of 2013, a year later than anticipated.
The work on the west Belfast Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) stadium is expected to last for 21 months and a new 40,000 all-seater stadium is expected to be completed by September 2015.
The total budget for the project is in the region of £76.4m.
The GAA will provide around £15m of the funding and the exchequer £64.1m.
The extent of the contribution from Croke Park has still to be finalised as the Ulster Council is still in discussions with Central GAA.
An invitation for tenders reveals the timeline for the design, planning application and construction of a stadium which will replace St Tiernach’s Park Clones as the new headquarters of Ulster GAA.
