Louth County Council have today given their backing to Louth GAA's purchase of a 10-acre site for the building of a new stadium.
An €8m, 12,000-capacity stadium is to be built close to Dundalk IT.
The news comes as a massive boost to the Louth County Board, after negotiations surrounding an expansion of the Gaelic Grounds in Drogheda collapsed earlier this year.
Should the plans gain approval, Louth are targeting a June 2020 opening date for the new ground.
The county's current Drogheda ground has a capacity of around 3,500.
