Lunn calls on Minister to examine shared stadium option

Lagan Valley Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn has called on Culture, Arts and Leisure Minister Carál Ní Chuilín to examine the possibility of creating a shared multi-sports stadium at the Maze site.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: “I note with pleasure the Minister’s decision to attend the Northern Ireland international against the Faroe Islands and I am sure she will enjoy the experience.

“The issue of stadia in Northern Ireland is one which should be re-examined to consider the options for the future. I believe that it would be very positive if the Minister would examine the possibility of a shared stadium for GAA, rugby and football.

“There is excellent work going on as regards the Maze site at present and I would also like to see the site being considered again as a location for a shared stadium.

“The Maze site has massive potential and could be a key economy driver for Northern Ireland.

“It is vital that we build a shared society and the creation of a shared multi-sports stadium would I believe be an important part of this. Having a shared stadium would also send out a very positive message to the world that we are building a shared future here.

“Having one large multi-sports stadium here could also help us attract even more large sporting events and music concerts to Northern Ireland. The Maze site would be an excellent location for a stadium and I call on the Minister, Carál Ní Chuilín, to urgently examine this possibility.”
