I saw this old plan of Croke Park from 1937 on Twitter.
So the romantic notion of the hill being built of the rubble of the uprising isn’t true no? Kind of always knew that, but when asked I always recount this version
So is the other account true? That the hill was originally nicknamed Hill 60 after the Dublin Fusiliers that died in Gallipoli 1915? And was known as Hill 60 throughout the 20s and 30s?
So was this Hill 60 the left half of the the Cusack Stand?
And was that half of the Cusack eventually renamed Hill 16? And when was that - 1936/37?
And when was the Railway End renamed Hill 16?
