Kildare announce plans for redevelopment of St Conleth's Park as planning permission is granted

The venue was at the centre of the ‘Newbridge of Nowhere’ saga back in June.

KILDARE GAA HAVE announced they’ve been granted planning permission for the redevelopment of county grounds St Conleth’s Park.

The venue was at the centre of the ‘Newbridge of Nowhere’ saga back in June after the GAA announced Kildare’s Round 3 qualifier game against Mayo would be moved to Croke Park because St Conleth’s Park was not fit to host the game.

A stand-off ensued, with Kildare insisting they would not fulfil the fixture unless it was played in their home venue. Eventually, the GAA backed down and Kildare went on to enjoy a famous victory over Mayo in front of 8,200.

Last night, Kildare confirmed they would be going ahead with plans to renovate St Conleth’s Park and they released a number of images of the proposed plans.
