Reply To: National Stadium announcement
Can the IRFU request the use of Croke Park?
My main point is that the stadium should either be at Lansdowne Road or (at a push) Ringsend but not out in the suburbs.
Both Spurs and West Ham have recenly redeveloped their stadia whilst matches were played (without problems from the English FA, UEFA etc) – what is stopping us from doing the same.
And even though the stands at Croke park took 2 years to build the staduim was still open (I don’t understand your argument here)
Turning the pitch 90 Degrees is possible if correct project management is carried out – it is just a question of is the will there to do so.
