Casement Park GAA stadium in Belfast has received planning approval and the Ulster GAA council has appointed the Heron Buckingham joint venture to build a 38,000 seater stadium, the largest in Northern Ireland.

Heron Bros built a major stand at Ravenhill, the home of Ulster Rugby and Buckingham Group has developed similar sized projects in Britain in recent years in Milton Keynes and Brighton.

We look forward to delivering this fantastic project in conjunction with the Stadium Project Board of the Ulster GAA, DCAL and the design team in the months ahead, and to working very closely with the local community and the local supply chain in it’s delivery.
