Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Michelle O’Neill led a party delegation, including Sinead Ennis MLA and Paul Maskey MP to meet with the GAA’s Ulster Council today.

Michelle O’Neill said: “Today’s engagement with the GAA’s Ulster Council was extremely positive and encouraging.

“We discussed the issue of Casement Park. I assured the Ulster Council of Sinn Féin’s support for the development of Casement Park and welcomed the continued good work that the Ulster Council have been undertaking.

“Sinn Féin will be seeking urgent meetings with both the Department for Infrastructure and the Department of Communities about the ongoing delay of Casement Park.

“We also discussed the lack of GAA coverage in the north from the BBC. 

|Sinn Féin believes that the BBC must do more for northern Gaels. 

“We put a number of suggestions to the Ulster Council to attempt to move this forward.”
