Antrim GAA Share Photos Of Derelict Casement Park In Horrific State

Antrim GAA have shared photographs on social media of their home ground, Casement Park in a dilapidated state.

The ground, which has been lying idle since 2013 when it was closed for a major 38,000 seater refurbishment that was granted planning permission in February 2014. However these plans were put on hold when there were concerns about the layout of the stands.

A further plan was submitted last year that addressed the previous concerns and reduced the capacity the height of the stadium by 40 feet, but residents are still objecting to a stadium with a capacity greater than 25,000.

To add to their woes, the fact that their has been no government at Stormont has made it more difficult to secure funding.

Antrim GAA expressed their frustration at the delay tweeting, “we deserve a county ground.”
