Politics? I doubt the rebels in the peoples republic would be happy for a start. They weren’t exactly impressed with the decision to redevelop Thomond Park but they’d go looney over that suggestion altogether
Pairc ui Chaoimh in its current decrepit state, shouldn’t be allowed to host a major game again after the fiasco at the Cork v Tipp game last year.
I’ve always felt that the GAA should prioritise 1 stadium in each province for investment to bring it up to an accepatable standard. In Munster, Pairc na nGael is the most modern and therefore would require less investment than the others. A new main stand and potentially a roof over the open stand would transform it into a very tidy ground. Its also got geography on its side.
However the GAA is far too parochial to make common sense decisions. Semple Stadium in Thurles has the “tradition” which is so highly valued by the association, so it will always be considered the No.2 stadium behind Croke Park and thus the undisputed No.1 in Munster.
