There will be no shortage of interest in the United Park site if it comes on the market in the future.
The ground has already been the subject of a proposal to build a nursing home on the grounds, with the site valued at about €2.5m.
That was not progressed.
Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital is undergoing a multi-million euro upgrade at present with the main entrance and old laundry all being developed.
Reports indicate that a private clinic will be required in the future and United Park is seen as perfect for it.
