Project Overview

(further information on the proposals will appear on this page in the coming days)

The proposals are to facilitate the upgrading of Shamrock Park to include replacement of existing spectator stand, new training facilities to be contained with Dome structure, relocation of existing grass pitch and floodlighting, provision of business/incubation and community space and other ancillary works.

In summary:

  • The existing spectator 800 seater stand located towards the western boundary of the site is to be replaced with a 1046 seater stand. The total number of spectator seating in the stadium would be 3814. An increase of 246 seats.
  • The existing training area towards the northern boundary of the site is to be replaced with a state-of-the-art training facility, contained within a dome structure. The new training facilities would be open to the wider community, including schools and others. An existing access off Fitzgerald Park would be utilised to access the training facilities.
  • Slight relocation of existing grass pitch north, to be upgraded to a 3G playing pitch
  • Relocation of floodlights where necessary
  • Inclusion of business/incubation and community space including within the ground of the new spectator stand
  • Upgraded turnstiles
