Minister John O’Dowd welcomes High Court Casement Park ruling

Speaking following the judgement, John O’Dowd said: 

“I welcome the decision by  Mr Justice Humphreys who has upheld the decision to approve the Casement Park redevelopment.  I hope today signals a way forward for Casement Park. 

The redevelopment of this stadium will unlock a brighter future for west Belfast and beyond.  It will not only provide the much needed, modern facilities required for Gaelic games in Belfast and for the Ulster GAA family but it will also provide many other economic and social benefits for the local community and local businesses.”
