Plans for €19m sports campus in Abbotstown

Plans for the development of a €19m National Sports Campus at
Abbotstown have been announced by the Minister for Sport.

Minister for Sport Leo Varadkar said the "Bertie Bowl" was no more,
but work would be going ahead on other aspects of the campus.

The GAA, the FAI, the IRFU and the Irish Hockey Association have all
agreed to develop their own facilities at the site.

Work on access roads and infrastructure is to begin in September and
will be completed by the end of the year.

The budget for the work is €19m over four years.
