Galway county board treasurer Bernie O'Connor has revealed that it would take a considerable amount to upgrade their main grounds.

The safety audit that took place all over the country revealed that Pearse and Tuam Stadiums as well as Ballinasloe needed considerable work in order to retain their full capacities.

However, O'Connor revealed that the cost of upgrading Pearse Stadium to such a standard would be in the region of a quarter of a million.

"The figure for Pearse Stadium is €250,000 - Tuam and Ballinasloe have also been audited but we haven't got the figures back for those," stated O'Connor.
