Drone footage shows how one of the country's biggest GAA stadiums is in ruin

It doesn’t make for pretty viewing.

CASEMENT PARK, ONCE one of the iconic grounds on the GAA circuit, has been lying idle for two years now and new footage shows how the venue has gone to ruin.

Plans for the £77 million redevelopment of the Belfast ground were quashed by the High Court at the end of last year after an objection from a resident’s group was upheld.

The original timeline had the project to commence in late 2013 with the redevelopment, which would increase the capacity to 40,000, scheduled to be completed by September of this year.

Unfortunately it’s all fallen by the wayside and this dramatic footage, recorded by SkyEye Belfast, reveals the extent of Casement Park’s dilapidation.
