Antrim Get The Go Ahead For Belfast Venue As Kildare Set For Corrigan Park Clash

Antrim GAA have confirmed their Qualifier clash with Kildare will go ahead at Corrigan Park in West Belfast on 22 June.

The game has been set for 2.30pm in the club venue. It will be an all-ticket affair as it only holds just over 2,000 spectators.

Speculation mounted earlier this week that the tie may be moved as the venue had to pass a safety inspection first. Antrim have been without a proper home ground since Casement Park closed in 2013. Corrigan Park on Whiterock Road belongs to St John's Club.

Already this year, they were forced to cede home advantage and play Tyrone at Armagh's Athletic Grounds.

However, it was confirmed the game will go ahead as planned after county board officials met with the GAA and Belfast city council, who are in charge of issuing a safety certificate.
