“The 45,000-seat Gaelic games stadium hosts not only Gaelic football, which is played only in Ireland, but also rock and pop concerts. The stadium and the holy field were completely renovated with its oversized dimensions of 144 x 88 meters. Zeman Stahlbau hat das Stadion mit einer beeindruckenden Stahlkonstruktion für die Dächer über der Nordtribüne und Südtribüne überbaut. Over the Northstand, welded steel girders with a running height of up to 1.50 meters and a cantilever of 25 meters are business as usual for Zeman, but the spatial steel truss construction over the Southstand was new territory. Gesamt sind zehn Doppelgespärre auf der laydown-area zusammengebaut worden. The dimensions of each gantry of approx. 45 meters in length, 10 meters in width and a height of almost 18 meters and, above all, the unit weight of almost 70 tons showed the limits of even the heaviest mobile cranes available in Ireland. The complete steel structure, weighing approx. 900 tons, was calculated and planned at Zeman in Vienna, produced at the Zekon production facility in Poland and assembled by Zeman in Ireland.”  ...
