Louth gain council's backing for new 12,000-capacity stadium site

18 December 2018

Louth County Council have today given their backing to Louth GAA's purchase of a 10-acre site for the building of a new stadium.

An €8m, 12,000-capacity stadium is to be built close to Dundalk IT.

The news comes as a massive boost to the Louth County Board, after negotiations surrounding an expansion of the Gaelic Grounds in Drogheda collapsed earlier this year.

Should the plans gain approval, Louth are targeting a June 2020 opening date for the new ground.

The county's current Drogheda ground has a capacity of around 3,500.
