Tallaght Stadium set for expansion to 10,500 capacity
Shamrock Rovers are the anchor tenants of the south Dublin venue.

SHAMROCKS ROVERS WILL be playing out of a 10,500 capacity arena when work is completed on the development of a fourth stand in Tallaght Stadium.

South Dublin County Council have confirmed they will press ahead with a new 2,500 seater north stand following a meeting on Monday, according to a report on

The redevelopment work will cost €7.7m, which includes €1.7m for remodelling works to the west stand.

The new north stand will have 500 more seats than the existing South Stand. It will  facilitate the offices and commercial units and covered stairs at either side of the stand, behind wing walls to provide improve access and shelter.  

It’s intended the stadium will be used for events such as concerts, festivals and all aspects of community engagements.

It could accommodate up to 20,000 people when such events are able to be held after the lifting of current Covid-19 restrictions, according to the council.
