Ulster GAA fans view Casement Park fly-through video

 Casement Park


A fly through video of the proposed new Provincial Stadium at Casement Park was played to the capacity crowd at the Ulster Football Final between Tyrone and Down today.

Ulster GAA unveiled the video to supporters before the senior game providing a panoramic view of the iconic stadium bowl, proposed sporting and community facilities as well as the project’s planned education, culture and heritage centre.

Ulster GAA submitted its planning application for a new Provincial Stadium at Casement Park in early 2017 following an unprecedented 32-week community consultation. Findings from the consultation process revealed that 95% of people that responded to the design were in favour of the project which proposes a spectator capacity of 34,186.

Tom Daly, Chairman of the Casement Park Project Board commented:

“Ulster GAA’s Senior Football Final is one of the most passionate, colourful and exciting sporting events you will find anywhere in Ireland or indeed Europe.  With an eye on our proposed new Provincial Stadium at Casement Park we wanted to share the exciting new fly through of the project which brings to life the outstanding sporting, community, cultural and economic opportunities with GAA members, players and supporters at the game today.

‘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.”

Collie Donnelly, Chairman Antrim County Board said, “I got a real sense of excitement and expectation from people I spoke to today who had viewed the fly through video about the opportunities the new stadium will provide for Belfast and for clubs throughout the whole of our County.  Antrim has great clubs, great Gaels and a great sense of community and people within the County are looking forward to seeing our new generation of players representing the saffron jersey with pride at the new Provincial stadium at Casement Park, in Ireland’s second city.”

The video, was produced by Casement Park’s Award-winning design architect’s Populous.  Register your comments
