Reply To: B…B…Bertie’s Bowl looks like unmaterializing
As far as Eircom League grounds go, Shelbournes ground, Tolka Park, is probably the biggest – about 10k all-seated, but getting a bit old. Dalymount has had a new stand built and seats put on the old terraces, making it about a 6 or 7k ground, excluding standing.
Longfords ground is actually one of the best in the league. Its about 6k all seater, recently rebuilt and a benchmark for all other regional grounds. Turners Cross in Cork has about the same number of seats but is very constrained development wise by houses all around. None of the rest are really worth talking about as yet.
For all ye who are just interested in english football, the league here is improving, and so what if its not a great standard – if you like football you should support your local team anyway, as well as your english team. If you don’t like football disregard all that.
