Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has welcomed a court decision which gives the green light for the redevelopment of Casement Park and hailed it as a ‘major step forward’ for Gaelic games.
The West Belfast MP said:
“News that the court has ruled that the Casement Park redevelopment should go ahead is fantastic for the local area, for Antrim and Ulster GAA and for Gaels across the island.
“We have been working on this redevelopment for many years and it is great that it will take a major step forward towards completion.
“Not only will the state-of-the-art new stadium be a home for Antrim GAA, but it will also create jobs and help grow the local economy in West Belfast.
“I want to pay tribute to everyone involved in making this happen and look forward to the completion and opening of this fantastic new stadium.”
