Padraig Hampsey is relishing leading Tyrone into the Ulster final

The Ulster Council could hardly have been served with a bigger bonus as it prepares to host Saturday’s provincial senior football final between Tyrone and Monaghan at Croke Park than the announcement that formal approval for the redevelopment of Casement Park has finally been granted.

A decade has elapsed since the project was first mooted but a series of delays and hiccups in the interim meant that doubts were cast over the refurbishment of the stadium but now that the green light has been given, “it’s full steam ahead” to quote one Ulster official.
