Work on the refurbishment of Dr. Hyde Park began recently and will continue for a number of months. It is hoped that the works will be completed in time for the start of the National Football League in February 2017. It is estimated that the project will cost between €600,000 and €700,000. Speaking to the Roscommon People, Roscommon County Board Chairperson Seamus Sweeney said: “The protective work to secure the site began last Thursday week and the dismantling of the goalposts and the ball retaining nets is also underway. We expect that the work will continue for a number of months.”
