Casement Park to host International Rules in 2009?

Ireland’s victory over Australia in the reconvened International Rules series (or rather the trouble-free manner in which the two fixtures were played) seems to have put the games firmly back on schedule as a permanent fixture- though arguments persist over gap year plans. However, the news that Ulster is due to host Game 1 of the 2009 fixtures has led to speculation that Belfast’s Casement Park will be the venue for the game between the two countries, though as the Irish News notes, such a development would be subject to serious improvements in the player-changing and media facilities at the Belfast venue.
