Reply To: B…B…Bertie’s Bowl looks like unmaterializing
I was over in Manchester on Tuesday for the United game against Nantes….and wow what a stadium Old Trafford is……puts us Irish in the Dark Ages. We desperately need to have some sort of National Stadium arrangement made…..whether it be the Bertie Bowl, Croke Park or Landsdowne Road redeveloped….sure why not all. With the chance of staging the 2008 European Soccer Championships with our Scotish relatives it is a great opportunity to showpiece Ireland…(By then O’Connell will have been redeveloped too….we hope) It is a wasted chance if we don’t have a go. Alas Mary Harney’e pessimistic views have scuppered plans for Stadium Ireland….and I for one will not vote for her and her political party which hold such mean and frugal conservative concepts.
