McCarthy anger at IFA stadium decision

Alliance Culture Arts and Leisure Spokesperson Kieran McCarthy MLA has slammed the IFA saying that their decision to re-develop Windsor Park stadium has damaged the chances of a shared all-sports stadium being built.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “The IFA’s decision has seriously damaged the chances of a shared stadium being built.

“A shared stadium makes sense because Northern Ireland needs a ground which is a shared space where everyone feels they can come and can enjoy rugby, football and GAA. Anything less than a multi-sports stadium is simply not good enough..

“Sprucing up dilapidated facilities is not the way forward – a new stadium which all three sports buy into would be a massive economic driver for Northern Ireland. The IFA’s decision lacks ambition and I believe they need to have a total rethink. For Northern Ireland to build a united community we need shared services, not the duplication of facilities.”
