Reply To: Croke park
Maybe you’re right but I would appreciate it if you would give me some examples of U-shaped football stadiums. Irish people abroad are ambassadors and as such are called upon from time to time to counter the inevitable Irish jokes and gibes. More importantly I don’t think people who have never lived abroad ( for significant periods of time that is ) appreciate how important a countrys image is to prospective investors. Large scale projects like Croke park reflect the character and ability of the whole country, not just the GAA or the architect who designed it. Thats why countries vie so competitively for Olympics and World Cups etc.
