Gaelic games fans at the Ulster GAA final were treated to a fly-through video of the proposed new stadium at Casement Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Ulster GAA submitted a new planning application to Northern Ireland’s Belfast City Council for an iconic new provincial stadium at Casement Park in March.
The submission followed an unprecedented 32 week consultation period, with 95% of people that responded to the proposed design for the gaelic games venue coming out in favour of the project.
Developed by architect Populous, the proposed design sets out an iconic stadium bowl, a proposed spectator capacity of 34,186 and mixed use facilities with a range of resources to advance economic, cultural and heritage opportunities for West Belfast and beyond.
Ulster GAA received feedback from over 5,000 people throughout the consultation process with around 3,000 people responding to the PACC2 design phase.
Tom Daly, chairman of the Casement Park Project Board, said the video brings to life the sporting, community, cultural and economic opportunities the new stadium hopes to offer.
We are extremely excited about the plans for our new stadium and we want GAA members, people in the local community and everyone that has an interest in the project to see for themselves the impact it will have and to have their voice heard on the project.
The Ulster GAA team is looking forward to the outcome of the planning application later this year and the opportunities that the stadium will provide for future generations across, Belfast, Antrim and Ulster.
