It was possible to engineer the hill to look like the other stands in the ground but I think the GAA were correct in leaving it pretty much intact as is. This way it will conserve the great tradition and atmosphere that is the hill. Having another tier over your head just wouldn’t be the same.
It also adds a bit of quirkiness to the ground. It will never feel like one of these soulless out of town super stadia as you can always get a view of the city in the background.
Just because most stadia have four equal sides doesn’t mean Croke Park has to and thatâ€™s what I like that about it even if it was a result of a fiscal decision and some ardent Dubs.
