Sports Minister Carál Ní Chuilín stressed she hasn’t awarded Derry City Council any money towards the redevelopment of the Brandywell when asked about the Stadium by SDLP MLA Colum Eastwood.

She stated: “The Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL) has awarded no funding to Derry City Council for the redevelopment of Brandywell Stadium.

“On October 23, 2013, I announced that my Department will invest at least £2million towards the Daisyfield/Showgrounds as part of City of Culture capital legacy projects in 2014/15.”

In 2012 she said no Government funding would be available for stadium development at sub regional level until 2015 at the earliest.
