Two local councillors are proposing that Donegal County Council take a ‘lead role’ in the completion of the troubled new Finn Harps stadium in Stranorlar.
Both Martin Harley (FG) and Gary Doherty (SF) have put forward a motion on the matter to today’s meeting of the local authority.
Cllr Harley is proposing the council take a ‘lead role’ in order to ensure the completion of the ‘Donegal Community Stadium’ given it owns the land on which it is being built.
“In this regard, I am calling on this council to ensure that the required matching funding is put in place as a matter of urgency by sourcing same in conjunction with the FAI and any other relevant funding agency,” proposed Cllr Harley.
In a similar motion, Cllr Doherty proposes that “This Donegal County Council recognises the strategic importance of the proposed Donegal Community Stadium to sport in the county and commits to: – taking a lead role in project management, – working with the stadium committee and other stakeholders to ensure timely progress and working with other stakeholders to source the necessary funding to complete the project”.
