Where did you get this information, Tipp-Ex? If it's in a newspaper article, throw up a link, if possible.

The overrun is far more than €25m.

The original cost back in 2011 for a 43,500 capacity was €40m to €60m, an overrun of €50-70m.

Then the price went to €67m, still an overrun of €43m.

Then €78.4m, still an overrun of €31.6m.

Then we heard about €84m, which is presumably the baseline for this €25m loss being mooted today.

But if we trace it back, €25m is clearly only the tip of the iceberg. It's actually €50-70m, though we have gained 1,500 seats.

Shambolic as usual, now it's official. No wonder they wouldn't give out a figure themselves the fucker. That steering committee should be dragged over the coals but of course nothing will happen. No wonder Bob was fired

A thorough investigation should be done on the whole process, from start to finish. Double the initial estimate at a time when we'd a recession in the country.
How a person with no construction background was given the project manager job is beyond me.
He nearly bankrupted the county board back in the 70's and without Croke Park help would have done so this time in my opinion.

Taken from elsewhere.

CCB appointed a steering group of five personnel who were Frank Murphy, Bob Ryan, Ger Lane, Christy Cooney and Pearse Murphy. Part of their role was to direct the project and to advise and liaise with the design team on all matters.

These 5 have serious questions to answer

Yerra Tipp, Peter McKenna isn't too worried about the debt and it's resting on his shoulders now.
The biggest question to answer is the location of the stadium and the difficulty of road and pedestrian access.
McKenna's tea-bag explanation for the state of the pitch is laughable. One one imagine that those charged with the
development could and should have anticipated the compaction caused by cranes and heavy machinery running up and down
the sides and acted accordingly.
Of course McKenna is well paid to feed this stuff to the unwashed and at the end of the day he knows full well that eventually
this cock up will be forgotten if and when Cork win the next All Ireland.
