Can Kerry GAA really afford to give the Old Lady of Lewis Road a €72 million facelift?

When Patrick O’Sullivan told delegates on Tuesday night that Fitzgerald Stadium “needs a major refit, upgrading it to a multi event centre to cater for the needs of the people of Kerry... [and] to entice some of the finest Irish and International entertainment acts to this county” we cannot be sure if anyone on the floor had the sights and sounds of Ed Sheeran spinning around their head.

It’s a moot point who or what the Kerry GAA chairman considers the “finest Irish and International entertainment acts” because the headline takeaway from Mr O’Sullivan’s address to convention is that the County Board is considering spending over €72 million to give the Old lady of Lewis Road a facelift.
