Yes you are correct. I no more than any supporter on the specifics of Dundalk FC. i am familiar with sports capital applications, and associated stuff like planning issues with sporting developments, feasibility or justification for funding applied for (multi use facility used the be the where the money went so why many GAA clubs have indoor football or small artiicial 7 a side patches, patchwork of lines painted on gym floors for as many sports as possible). After that i am just considering the amount of work that is needed for a full feasability study on Oriel, the same for a plan b, the cost of doing these, when money due will clear to possibly broaden the scope of any studies, pay for full architect plans that can be submitted even as a tester type thing. That talkss with local government is not a click yer fingers and meeting held especially if the FAI are joing these meetings. Unofficial sounding out on potential level of grant funding over say 5 years though that may be more an FAI job. A thorough development plan and any study shouldnt be rushed as it is a one shot chance. A year isnt ridiculous for it all to come together especially when income fluctuates or is delayed as obviously what is in the bank will effect the scope of a plan. And all before potential objections from planners, residents, GAA, tree hugger types, ABP. (Think of the proposed ski slope et al that planning was applied for out at Dundalk Stadium, all the prep and cost and applications in to be granted (I think) permission appealed to ANP, planning overturned , a resubmission of adjusted plans for the process to happen again. Some ass decides on a judicial review due to Daffy Duck's nest on an average bit of swampy ground......and they gave up on the plan in the end, cut and run). So it will be meticulous and time consuming, a complete pain in the head for someone, but costly if a rushed job. At this stage whether there is anything from the clubs it makes little difference between now and November at least.
