Re: Re: National Stadium
No athletics track is planned. The track element had originally been part of the plans for Abbotstown. However, it had been dropped as the Bertie Bowl plan was scaled back, even before its final abandonment.
I think Mr Ahern will rue his comments of recent days and they will no doubt form part of any proposed objections to Lansdowne Road.
In light of the GAA’s magnaminous decision, it would have been a brave resident that fought a planning battle against the redevelopment of a National Stadium. They would have faced ridicule in the newspapers for a start. But I think the Taoiseach’s comments will give them a new-found bravado.
