The 5 protesters were hilarious.

Looks like it'll be a brilliant stadium when completed, and will be one of the best in the GAA (probably give Croke Park a run for it's money)

And what a transformation too, from this

To this

The Ulster GAA will also move it's headquarters (and Ulster championship final) from St. Tiernach's Park in Clones to Casement Park when the redevelopment is complete.

Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork is also undergoing redevelopment, going from a capacity of about 32,000 to 45,000.

It'll go from this

I have family in Belfast. When I read there were 5 protesters at the presser I had to have a look.

Absolutely shocked that my brother in law wasn't part of that 5.
My name is Dr. Worm.
Good morning. How are you? I'm Dr. Worm.
I'm interested in things.
I'm not a real doctor,
But I am a real worm;
I am an actual worm.
I live like a worm.
I like to play the drums.

Belfast's high court has overruled the Casement Park project

Interestingly, if they get a new project up, it will also be included as a potential ground for Ireland's 2023 Rugby World Cup bid.

The ground is currently abandoned

Pairc Ui Chaoimh has reopened. Somewhat surprised at the grey/black seating arrangement given Cork wears red and white.
