Reported today that the GAA CCC offered counties with home games on the Sat eve the opportunity to move start time back to 7.30 to allow supporters watch end of Ire v Eng rugby (expected to finish at 6.50pm). The Kerry Co Board in their infinite wisdom have said NO!
The majority who will be interested in the rugby now face the prospect of all trying to get into what is small ground at the same time. It beggars belief that they would stick to the 7pm start. Beggars belief too that the guards would allow this. The Kerry Co Board proving what a bunch of bleedin amateurs they are
Am one of many people going to the game who will want to watch the rugby. Not all of us are pure gaels like yourself Alan. Silly pig headed nonsense not starting the game at 7.30. From health & safety point of view almost certain start of game will be delayed anyway.
Watch what you want! I’m sure the Rugby crowd are fretting themselves about how to accommodate
the GAA when it clashes with one of their games.
Depending on how it’s going I might watch the end of the rugby but a click will send me to Kerry for the real game. I’d like to be there to have the worry of not seeing the end of the rugby.
Correct. Soccer and rugby had to beg us for stadia but I don’t ever recall them being asked to change their times to suit us. Like it or not they are the competition. I have no interest in facilitating them. Never have.
Jesus lads it’s not alway a competition that someone had to win. Our national rugby team will hopefully be playing to win major international competition. You can support / facilitate both without it compromising your gaelic purity!
