Chairman of Tipperary GAA Joe Kennedy has admitted that work set to be done on Semple Stadium is likely to not go ahead for several years.
The Old Stand at the home of Tipperary hurling and football was due a much-needed refurbishment when permission was granted for plans to improve the stand in 2020.
The hope was to develop new dressing rooms, meeting rooms and function facilities.
Those refurbishments are not coming anytime soon, however, with chairman Joe Kennedy admitting that the pandemic has negatively impacted the County Board’s ability to receive funding.
He said: “I’d say they’re on a big pause at the minute because we will be depending on funding from Munster Council and Croke Park, and the Sports Capital Funding or some such funding like that, to fund a development like that.
“So, I can’t see that happening in the next two to three years, you know until the whole association is on surer financial footing – it’d be very difficult to see any commencement of work on that at present.”
