Europe's biggest balloon is in....Connacht!

Europe’s biggest balloon is in…Connacht!

‘Croke Park with a roof’ that’s how Connacht GAA’s amazing new sports dome has been described.

Laying claim to the title of the world’s biggest sports dome, it is located at Bekan, Claremorris, County Mayo.

As well as providing cover for GAA players in the winter, it’s also set to provide a great venue option for non sporting events.

And it’s quite a feat of engineering.

In the pandemic the nation’s optimism took a bit of a knock but fair play to the Connacht council of the GAA. Some vision and an ‘unrale’ sight in the west!👏👏👏👏
