I think it's been mentioned on here already, but I'm just here watching Salford City and their ground is a lovely wee stadium. It's definitely something we should be looking at if and when we see some movement on that front.

It seems Louth GAA are getting a new home up by dkit, with the involvement of Louth county council. It'll be a full gaa venture with no soccer or rugby add ons which was the plan long ago.

Will we ever get council support? It's there a gripe against dfc now after Kenny and Breathnachs spat? It's there jealousy after our windfall in Europe and American suitors? Too many questions with Louth GAA and Drogheda united getting council support, I hope that DFC will get something supportive soon.

Why don’t the owners inform supporters about plans for a proper stadium.

Expect the usual suspects to post shortly to lecture people that they have no right to know.

While they have not given any details, they have certainly said clearly that there are plans in the pipeline

The American chairman of Dundalk, Mike Treacy, has asserted that his vision for the Louth club involves qualification for the group stages of the Champions League.

But he has assured supporters that there are plans in the pipeline to improve the dated facilities at Oriel Park with Treacy acknowledging that the unpopular section for away supporters is the 'worst in the league.'

Had a chat with Dundalk chairman Mike Treacy after last Thursday’s Europa League win where he revealed Peak owner Matt Hulsizer was impressed by the potential of Oriel Park having visited for the first time. Treacy said there were plans for the ground “in the pipeline”.

There’s just so much opportunity here. We took them around the entire ground and over to the YDC and talked about some things. I’m not going to go into detail on those because everyone will get all excited about it but it was great," he said. Full story in this week's Argus

Looking at the highlights of the Limerick away league and the Longford v Cork cup match, these are two grounds where you see can even modest additions would be perfect for us to have in place.

Limerick away stand is a simple structure which would be fine for domestic games, and either behind the goal areas in Longford could be easily constructed too. These type of builds could fit into the plans that Mike T indicated in the articles above.

The timing from end of Oct to early Feb is more than enough to get things improved, but the question of course is, will anything be done after this season ends? I wouldn’t be too confident.

On a positive note there is a good centre piece in the Argus sports section where James Rogers talks to Mal Brannigan about possible developments of Oriel Park with hinting of upgrades for next season.
