The scheme aims to deliver improved pedestrian access to the front of St Tiernach's Park.

Monaghan County Council has lodged plans for upgrades that would provide an "open pedestrian plaza" for St Tiernach's Park on matchdays.

The upgrades of pedestrian facilities and carriageway alterations would affect around 300 metres of the Roslea Terrace road, opposite St Tiarnach's Park Clones.

The overall scheme aims to deliver improved pedestrian access to the front of St Tiernach's Park, along Roslea Terrace.

The works will consist of new, widened footpaths either side of the existing road, which will require the acquisition of lands opposite St Tiernach's Park.

The works will also involve the construction of a new retaining wall and the demolition of an existing dwelling.

There will also be slight changes to the appearance of the exterior wall of St Tiernach's, though "discussions and agreements" are to be confirmed with the GAA.

This will facilitate an open pedestrian plaza on match days and an improved pedestrian link to the Peace Link sports complex, from both the town centre and GAA pitch.

The proposals will also include landscaping with planting and paved areas, street lighting and a dedicated controlled pedestrian crossing from the GAA pitch to the Peace Link campus.
