Visits to sports grounds
This week I visited the three sports grounds identified by the governing bodies of footbally, rugby and GAA as their preferred ground for a major stadium that would meet their particular needs. The visits to Casement Park, Ravenhill and Windor Park were extremely useful and I was able to see these situations at first hand.
The new stand at Ravenhill provides excellent accommodation for spectators and shows just what can be done.
Consultants have now been appointed to carry out economic appraisals on the proposals for the three grounds and I hope to have my recommendations with the Executive before Christmas.
