#3800

he managed to bring in Dublin population money, not playing outside Croke park all into an article allegedly about Kildare V Mayo and Newbridge, the spin keeps coming


#3801

Occam’s razor - should be reworded, when all things go wrong in the GAA blame Dublin.


#3802

I see that Cunningham lad is laying it on pretty thick the last while in regards to Dublin .
All very subtle but there’s been a trend of it .
Also loves to add in , " its not Dublin’s faults , its the GAAs".


#3803

Few ulster finals down in croke park as well back in the day you can tell Cunningham.

As someone else said - only an issue now we are winning all irelands


#3804

Interesting article but is thst true we rent it? First I’ve ever heard of that…


#3805

Me thinks Philly doesn’t quite know what he’s talking about there.


#3806

For league games I would assume we would have to rent it. If DCB is taking money off the gate they’d have to pay a nominal fee to the GAA for use of the facility surely


#3807

Yes I m sure I read that when Dublin resumed league games in Croker that it had to be rented for those matches. Perhaps that’s what Philly was referring to.


#3808

Croke Park Stadium is run by a company - PCT Pairc an Chrocaigh Teoranta which is ar arms length from the GAA . If the Gaa Central Council, Leinster Council, the Ladies Football, Camogie or Dublin want to use the stadium for any games they must rent it from PCT.


#3809

So Philly may not be the big eejit somebody tried to paint him earlier?


#3810

Even Cumann na mBunscoil have to rent it out for their finals!!!


#3811

Philly is most definitely not an eegit. He was spot on, and yes the Primary Schools do hire the pitch for their games.
A check of the GAA and PCT annual accounts will confirm that rent changes hands between them.


#3812

Looking forward to the ‘hands up I was wrong’ post …


#3813

Cheers genuinely never knew that. And in case I get the curly finger of anyone it wasnt me saying he was incorrect in his interview!


#3814

We know who he was referring to :smirk:


#3815

Phew that’s one big sigh of relief…


#3816

think fitzy struggling a bit this weather. where is david byrne gone? Fitz and philly 30.Cian must be close also to 30. Is the defence slowing up?super 8s with 3 games over 4 weeks Jim will get to have a good look at players. Maybe Byrne and Murchan will stake a claim for a semi final spot
