Clare council opposes stadium (The Irish Times) 05.10.2006
Plans by Bord na gCon to construct a €20 million greyhound stadium on the fringes of Limerick city have run into problems with the local authority.
Clare County Council has informed the greyhound board that “it is not favourably disposed towards the proposed development as currently proposed for a number of reasons”.
The primary reason arises from a submission from the National Roads Authority that the stadium should not be in place until the completion of the €349 million Shannon tunnel in 2010. The greyhound board announced its intention when lodging the plans in July that the stadium would be operational by 2008.
