The Royal Dublin Society (RDS) has secured the go-ahead from Dublin City Council for a new three-tier 6,481 capacity Anglesea Stand at the RDS ground.

The RDS told the city council that the increased capacity is essential for securing some of the high-profile events which the RDS is expected to host to remain attractive in an increasingly competitive field.

The existing Anglesea stand was built in the early 1930s and can accommodate 5,743 in rugby mode and its proposed replacement will accommodate 6,481 patrons, representing an increase of 738.

The new plan involves a new three-level grandstand with a connected two level hospitality and services building called the 'Pocket Building'.

Planning had been previously been granted for the redevelopment of the stand but the new stand won’t be completed before this permission expires, necessitating the need for the new planning application.
