The development of a new stand at Tallaght Stadium in Dublin has been given the go-ahead.

The total capacity will increase to 10,500 people, which will allow it to hold more games and attract concerts to the venue.

Local Green Party Councillor, Liam Sinclair, says it should be completed by 2022.

"It means that it is up to UEFA category four, which means it can hold any European match, including Champions League.
