Tallaght Stadium to be expanded to 20,000 capacity live music venue

South Dublin City Council to upgrade stadium in effort to promote it as a live music venue.

South Dublin City Council have immediate plans to increase the seating capacity of Shamrock Rover’s ground to 10,000. Following impending branding and advertising analysis Tallaght Stadium is also set to get a high end corporate area. These renovations are part of a push to enable the stadium to be suitable for live music, community events and festivals.

With the new additions to the grounds and including temporary on-field seating, the council-owned venue aims to eventually hold 20,000 at max capacity for the aforementioned types of events.

Chief Executive of South Dublin County CouncilDaniel McLoughlin, noted, “Tallaght Stadium provides a focal point for the entire County and its development as an events venue will further enhance South Dublin’s reputation as being to the forefront of the tourism market.”

The impending improvements follow the earlier expansion works in March with the opening of the South Stand.

Currently Shamrock Rovers’ home for  Airtricity League games, it has also provided the venue for Ronaldo’s Real Madrid debut in 2009.
