The company behind the stadium has no connection with the football club so this news doesn't have immediate consequences for Athlone Town FC. However, following the investor's amazing act of generosity, hopes are also high that the football club, and its playing side, could also benefit from the investor's good-will in the very near future.

A liquidator has been appointed to insolvent Wexford construction company Goff Developments.
Ken Fennell of Kavanagh-fennell was appointed following a vote of the company's creditors recently.
Goff Developments was run by father and son, Francis and Damien Goff, of Horetown, Killinick, and has completed some large commercial, civil and residential projects in Co Wexford in the past 15 years.
Goff Developments had suffered a significant fall off in business through 2008 and had effectively ceased contracting in 2009. It also suffered as a result of bad debts.
The statement of affairs prepared by the directors of the company showed an overall deficit of over €10 million owed to both secured and unsecured creditors. The statement of affairs also showed €1.3 million owed by debtors and ownership of portion of a sewage treatment plant with Wexford County Council in Bridgetown.

Dogs allowed to roam freely around Wicklow town all hours of the day and night are causing considerable problems.
Cllr Malcolm Earls raised the issue at last week's Wicklow Town Council meeting.
The Fine Gael councilor queried who was responsible for paying the county's only dog warden's wages.
'I understand there's only one in the county and he's extremely overworked. We have a problem at the moment in Wicklow town with roaming dogs. They're howling at night and keeping people awake, and also running after cats and running after children. But the dog warden can't come down frequently enough as he has to cover the whole county and is busy elsewhere.'
