    New Stadium

    Is next season Harps' last season in Finn Park?

    Any updates on the new ground?

    Hopefully it'll be our last year, perhaps second last. Work is in progress.

    Supposed to be our last season in Finn Park anyway, but who's to know. I've heard that the steel structures are to be put in place in the new year, but again it all depends on the drawdown of grant money.

    Honestly, nobody knows. We're being kept largely in the dark. Work was supposed to be at full steam before the end of the summer, but as of yet, there's very little happening.
    The money is supposedly there, and the construction company are working away on other projects, so I'm not entirely sure what's happening.

    A lot of progress indeed. Club secretary has stated the stadium is to be finished by 2015. Brilliant to see. It's full steam ahead from here. Hopefully we'll get a monthly update from the club on work. Hope to get regular photos myself once the season starts again.

    As far as I know, building work is continuing. By the summer the main structures should be in place according to a recent interview on Highland.

    Work ongoing at the minute after delay due to the poor weather. I'll try get some pictures in the next couple of weeks and get some sort of update on things. I believe next season is the aim.

    was round there week before last, not much change since froza hoops pictures. Hope to get round next week or week after and take a few pictures.

    It will be at least 2015 before we are playing there, as I'm told it take 10-12 months to grow a pitch from scratch and a lot of work before planting too.

    Why does this take so long? I'd have this done quicker with a shovel!

    Rome wasn't built in a day.

    Probably the reason Longfords stadium is in such disrepair in parts

    Mostly- good old fashioned bureaucracy and red tape.

    There was very little happening at the site for last few years so why would we post pics. Hope to post more every so often when there is big additions made. Go to http://www.harpstalk.com/forum where there is a section dedicated to the project for more
