Sinn Féin MLA Sinéad Ennis has welcomed the announcement of planning approval for the redevelopment of Casement Park.
The South Down MLA said:
“The announcement that planning approval has been given to build a new state of the art stadium at Casement Park is very welcome news.
“Not only will this be welcomed by Antrim Gaels; it is also a massive boost for west Belfast and the wider community.
“It will provide a welcome economic boost to west Belfast and also create many jobs in the construction.
“I want to congratulate the Ulster Council and Antrim GAA and everyone who worked so hard over many years to get where we are today.
“Sinn Féin have been at the forefront of campaigning on this project for many years, working with many others, to get us to a place where the Minister is in a place to make this positive announcement.”
