Dunne – Casement Park cannot jump the queue over public services

DUP North Down MLA and spokesman for Sport Stephen Dunne has said whilst the Party supports the joint UK/RoI Euro 2028 bid, an enhanced funding package for Casement does not align with competing pressures in schools, housing and hospitals.

Mr Dunne said,

“When we met the IFA some weeks ago, we explained that we do not support additional funding for the building of Casement Park in Belfast beyond what was originally allocated by the NI Executive to the three sporting bodies.

Whilst we support the joint Euro 2028 bid, we would be greatly concerned if Treasury was to unilaterally allocate additional resources to meet the GAA’s shortfall in the Casement Park project at a time when other vital public services are in need of additional and necessary resources.”
