I'm at the stage where I just can't see anything being done to oriel new structure building wise, who is going to pay for a brand new stand behind town goal for instance?

If it is what it is, and no options for any area to help (forget about LCC for a start), why not just tidy it up, build roofing for open seating sections where possible, try and raise money to install the type of thing Pats have behind their goal Inchicore end, temp / permanent and at least take the ground up to PD standard, which sadly it isn't.

Doubt Rovers will see a penny of it. SDCC as owners trying to recoup some of the money it's put into the stadium.

Possibly, though if Rovers win the League, they would fancy their chances of getting back into the Group stages of Conference league next year. Another few million.

They could dominate for a years years.Derry might have a say next year.

Really hope it's a ridiculous name. Hunky Dory park as a recent example

How can they rename something that doesn't belong to them?

It's on behalf of South Dublin CC that they are renaming it.

Finn Harps are making progress on their new stadium at Stranlonar . The site is levelled and ready for wok.
