Capacity in GAA county grounds to be reduced

Added: 23-11-2011

There has been a significant decrease in capacity across the north west regions inter-county GAA grounds following the recommendations of a specially commissioned report on health and safety.

More than a third of the capacity of Pairc Sean MacDiarmada in Leitrim has been shaved off -- down to 9,331 from 15,000.

The Slattery Report is now in the hands of the provincial councils and the GAA's management after a preliminary examination of every inter-county ground in the country.

It has yet to finalise preliminary figures on Donegal's County grounds at McCumhaill Park in Ballybofey.

Chairman of the Leitrim County GAA Board, Joe Flynn, says they will be carrying out the necessary upgrades over the next couple of months.
