2015-2016 (Under Construction)
Named after the founder of the Gaelic Athletic Association, Michael Cusack, the ground had a capacity of about 28,000 (mostly terraced), but following a 2011 safety review, the certified capacity was reduced to 14,864.
Three sides of the ground are terraced, the two areas behind the goals and one terraced length of the pitch which is also covered.
In 2006 there were media reports of substantial offers from property developers to buy the stadium and relocate it to a new 42,000 capacity site outside the town centre. By 2009 it appeared unlikely given the market conditions that this would happen, and in 2009-12, Clare GAA invested over €500,000 in refurbishment works including drainage, fencing and the erection of a new stand. In 2015, a major renovation started.
