Dr Hyde Park Development.

(Oldest Posts First)

Great to see County Board have applied for planning permission to redevelop Dr Hyde Park. Hopefully it goes through and we finally get a stadium to be proud off.

Good to see but they are Just doing the bit and bods such as toilets new dressing room etc that was agreed with the Connacht GAA last summer. Any new stand won't be done anytime soon as the money/funds won't be there and HQ are already busy trying to find ways to pay off the hugely overpriced stadium in Cork.

It's important that sufficient works are done to remove any doubt about Hyde Park being permitted by Mr Prenty's Connacht Council to host a Connacht Final.

To be fair, while the current main stand was a half-arsed effort in the end (I won't even get started on the concrete seats in front of it), we can't justify the construction of a new stand. It'd be lovely, something in the mould of O'Connor Park would be great but we just don't get the attendances to necessitate it, barring the odd CF.
