Reply To: Croke park
but aspillj its a fabulous stadium, when i lived abroad i was for ever showing off about it, people are always thinking that gaa sports are a folk activity like croquet or that indian game where you hold your breath and its great to be able to point out the high standard it is played at, the overwhelming popularity of the irish sports and the quality of croke park. the U-shaped design is a consequence of its urban location, which is one of the best things about it. it looks great from inside and out. if only we had a horse track so centrally located.
by the way, i apologise if it turns out that that indian game is actually second only to cricket in south asia and played in a magnificant stadium by highly trained athletes.
