Mayo GAA and Mayo County Council have confirmed that progress continues to be made on the Lough Lannagh facility which was announced previously and which is being advanced as a partnership project.
Due diligence work on the site has been completed and the purchase of the site is being finalised.
The intention is that the project will move to planning in February 2020.
The site is adjacent to Lough Lannagh and the new Castlebar Swimming Pool and close to the Castlebar Campus of GMIT.
The project will form part of a state-of-the-art sport, tourism and recreation hub.
