The official name of the stadium,according to this,is Sloanpark.Should this article name be changed?--Play Brian Moore 01:36, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

No, Sloane Park is the name of the shelf company which the former owners of SRFC set up to build the stadium, not the name of the ground. With the stadium nowin the council's hands, Sloane Park is being wound up. Jdorney

Content from main Rovers article[edit]

In the process of slimming the main article as requested by a ga reviewer, I'm leaving the replaced/summarised Tallaght content here to be incorporated into this article at some stage if necessary.

The GAA can't be facilitated in the stadium – it is as simple as that. I don’t know why they are persisting with it. They are simply holding up Shamrock Rovers from moving in, that's all that will come of any action. It can go to a hearing but there will be no climbdown by the Government. It is proposed to be the new home stadium for Shamrock Rovers and will have a capacity for 6,000 spectators. The stadium would need to be redesigned to accommodate Gaelic games. The GAA have their own site in Rathcoole and there are 24 acres (97,000 m2) there that are to be developed and I have said that I would help them with that but that's not enough for them.[1]

John O'Donoghue T.D., Minister for Sport, Arts and Tourism

We want to see Shamrock Rovers playing in the Tallaght Community Stadium – and as soon as possible. We have been working hard behind the scenes with the various stakeholders over the past two years to see Tallaght completed for soccer in the area.[2]

Capacity of Tallaght Stadium[edit]

(copied in part from Talk:Shamrock Rovers F.C.#Capacity of Tallaght Stadium)
There has been a slow-running revert war on the topic of how many seats exist in Tallagh Stadium since at least October. The first claim I became aware of was that the stadium had 8,600 seats. This was bolstered by this source which states "Rovers have installed an additional stand containing 2,500 seats at the car park end of the ground to bring the capacity up to 8,600. The club plans to put in additional seating following the Rubin Kazan game." This has been changed to 8,513 seats and no source was offered, 5,947 seats (a claim that also fails to be verified by sources), and most recently 8,000 seats (again with no source offered). This problem needs to be corrected. To recap, here are the prior claims and their respective proofs:

One of the threshold issues at Wikipedia is verification by reliable sources. If anyone can find any sources other than the 8,600 source then please present them. Otherwise these numbers may as well have been made up on the spot by vandals. Until we locate sources, the (only) verifiable 8,600 claim should be used in this article. -Thibbs (talk) 16:15, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
