Connacht Rugby, in conjunction with technical advisers, TOBIN Consulting Engineers and Chapman Architects, are launching a public consultation process as part of the Sportsground redevelopment project.

The consultation will include an open day in the Connacht Hotel next Tuesday, October 23, from 3pm to 9pm, where members of the public are welcome to attend.

During the consultation, drawings and images will be on display and representatives from Connacht Rugby, TOBIN Engineers and Chapman Architects will be available to receive submissions and feedback and answer questions on the project.

"We have already received a large number of emails with observations and offers of support," said Connacht CEO Willie Ruane.

"We are now planning a public session to provide an opportunity for local residents and the wider community to get to view the plans and provide feedback."

Ciarán McGovern of TOBIN Consulting Engineers said: "The Sportsground has been the home of Connacht Rugby since 1927. The delivery of this 12,000-capacity stadium and high performance centre is of huge strategic importance not just to Connacht Rugby but also to the entire West of Ireland."
