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.

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.
