28th July 2021
Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon has confirmed that Casement Park’s redevelopment has been GRANTED!
Nichola signed off today on plans for a 34,500 seater stadium to be built at Casement Park.
Ms Mallon said it was “an historic day for the GAA in Ulster and for Gaels across our island”.
"Last October I announced my intention to grant planning approval and I am delighted that all the statutory processes have now been completed to make that decision official and allow the Ulster Council of the GAA to proceed with their development plans.
"This will be fantastic news for the GAA family across Ulster and Ireland, particularly with the Ulster Final taking place this Sunday.
"Here's to an exciting Ulster final and many memorable games to come in a new state-of-the-art stadium in Casement, now that the GAA is to finally have the home it deserves in Ulster."
Antrim LGFA are absolutely delighted about finally having a home for the whole county & clubs
