    The hipster in Phibsboro really need to reduce what they spend on cat food so.

    But on a serious note it allows a project that is far from shovel ready to proceed to the next stage

    Also, in general, I wonder if the desire for cantilever style roofs hamstrings clubs a little bit. Does it mean that stands like that end up being uncovered with a vague plan to eventually put a roof in? Would fans have a big issue with support beams if it was a lot cheaper?
    Don’t believe we got a discount for it from whoever did it. Also thought it was €130k.

    More on the Harps situation: http://www.donegalsporthub.com/total...IG6Dv1fvrXlStM

    Fair to say Paul isn't overly happy with the situation.

    Paul is no mug, would expect him to get the funding approved before the election.

    Money from qualifying for Europe mainly, also some sponsorship. Its called the VW Bank stand. It could badly do with a roof. Sligo is one of the wettest parts of the country

    No, they are committed now so should be OK where they are allocated.

    Meanwhile Harps have written to all local Dail candidates about stadium issue.

    Yeah I'd imagine even if it could be part-roofed it would be better than nothing. At 1,300 capacity, the stand is probably a bit too big. I noticed that even the aspirational plans for the old shed end don't include spectator accommodation as a priority, saying increased capacity is not needed. Whereas if the VW stand was a bit smaller there might be more of a push to have another small stand down that end. I really like the Showgrounds, it's really close to being all you could ever need in a LOI ground but for a few niggley things like the lack of roof and empty shed end. It's one of our best grounds IMO.
