St Patrick's Athletic have unveiled plans to build their new stadium at St Michael's Estate. The most striking aspect of the new 12,000 seater stadium is that it will be placed on top of a shopping centre.

St Patrick's Athletic went public with their ambitious plans for the development of new grounds on Wednesday morning.

The club have partnered with HRS and FESP International, the development will include new homes and an Inchicore Town Centre with retail, leisure and community facilities on top of which would sit the club’s new stadium.

St Pats say they will not seek any grants from the government and they claim the stadium development will be financially independent.

The project will be managed by FESP and will take approximately two years to complete from when planning permission is granted.

The stadium will fall under Category 3 of UEFA's grading system, with 12,000 covered seats on the first floor of the building. 

The stadium has been designed by architect, David Mizrahi of HRS International who was also the lead architect with Santiago Calatrava on the Samuel Beckett and James Joyce bridges in Dublin.

The President of St Patrick’s Athletic, Tom O’Mahony, said: “We believe our proposal is a game-changer for Inchicore and, of course, for our Club. 

“It would give our supporters an ultra-modern stadium which would also be suitable for a wide range of community events.  It would transform Inchicore and would realise the City Council’s vision of a vibrant, high-quality urban quarter. 

"We will now engage with the City Council to discuss our plans and we hope to have an opportunity to play a leading role in the regeneration of our neighbourhood”.
