Westmeath GAA Pressing Ahead With Cusack Park Upgrades

The stadium in Mullingar has a capacity of 11,000.

Westmeath are pressing ahead with plans to upgrade Cusack Park. 

Improvements to the dressing rooms, showers, public toilets will be included as well as a new roof on the main stand and new disabled seating. 

It'll be funded through a €127,000 LEADER grant along with an ongoing application for sports capital grant. 

Half the money raised from a new fundrasier being run by Westmeath GAA, LGFA and Camogie will also go towards it. 

New county board chairman Frank Mescall says a significant shortfall will remain despite those three avenues but the project could take up to five years to complete.
