Newbridge a kip in 1993? What are you on about? Which other grounds had you been to? It's rundown now in comparison to other grounds but in 1993, it would have been more than acceptable. You take all this in from the pitch? The dressing rooms were too small. Accepted. Rest of it was fine. Relatively speaking.

Why would you do up a stadium for one Leinster Championship game in 30 years ? Ground is ideal for league and club championship. When Kildare ran up that debt, the team were playing week in, week out in qualifiers and over that 5 year period we had more televised games than anyone. We cleared the 'debt' very quickly. There were 15000 in Conleths in 2001 v Donegal. Nobody had an issue then. The ground redevelopment was stalled a couple of times. Once by Leinster Council when they were considering a hair brained M50 share with Meath, a long standing planning obijection by the Doc whose practice is behind where the terrace breaks and again during boom when Conleths was going to be sold for redevelopment as it is located in centre of town. The arse fell out of that like manly there.  KCB took bull by horns and are redeveloping the ground for 2020. Thankfully they are staying put in the heart of the town. And if you think we were wrong to challenge an arrogantly,  greedy CP, who make it up to suit themselves, we'll leave you to it.
Personally chief I couldn't care less. I'm an Armagh man and we've got a lovely, modern, fit for purpose stadium that holds County games and lots of Club championship games for players of all ages. We're proud of it. If you're happy with what you've got, then good luck to you. I just find it hard to understand that it takes a row with the GAA administration to generate some degree of animation within the County. In most other counties a good run in the championship and a chance of a match in Croker does that. I still am unclear as to who has won here and what they have won, apart from the Kildare manager who has cleverly managed to use this issue as a ruse to deflect attention from how useless he appears to be.


Just trying to educate you sir on reasons why you didn't find your one Feile experience there to your lofty standards. I hope the hundreds in attendance had enough room and the kids were not too traumatised by not playing on a stage comparable to the Athletic Grounds. Best of luck against The Banner. Be tricky one as they've been playing at a consistently higher level than you for a few years now .

Twice on national airwaves Big Dick plucked a Kildare v Limerick fixture from 2012 as example when Kildare wanted the game moved from Newbridge  . He couldn't have been further wrong. That was another stunt from Croke Park to get a few extra quid in.

Yah I noticed that change in sentiment. Not sure why. Nothing has changed. Except time is running out for Croke Park. In more ways than one for the ones who created this message when they should have been managing it. In other organisations , a f**k up like this would mean they'd be updating their CVs next week.

Nobody has asked Mayo to do anything.Cian O Neill made this very clear.  A lot of people assuming Kildare will go legal route too if thrown out. If we are throwing out, I'd like to see a few people in GAA HQ having their positions reviewed.  It's clear they can't manage the association adequately.  It's clear grassroots are cheesed off with them over how they are running the association generally.

Ah now, this is ultimately a GAA f**k up.  Changing goalposts (literally) AFTER draw was made. Then selling tickets online for Croker without Kildare consent. (Arrogance of that). Then that clown Feargal McGill releases statement about forfeiture which just forced entrenched positions .They should have been sorting this out in the background rather than picking a row. It was a GAA f**k up.  Not a hint of an apology either. Why haven't we built a bigger stadium? Well when you get one home provincial game in 30 years, why the f**k would you bother?

In fairness it's a pile of shite. So they now expect people to sit around all Sunday afternoon to catch whatever crumb of highlight they may or may not show after Brolly and Co finish 'analysis' of latest Dublin walkover. Pot luck at what time theyll squeeze it in. Im assuming they put it on in direct opposition to the 6 News? Great idea that. If this is their new format, what's the point in the evening package? Just a rerun of the games that were shown live? Bullshit.

 Get rid. This clown is the presenter of The Sunday Game. Let's be honest he hasn't a clue about the GAA. Cuala me arse. Used think he was a harmless eegit. That tweet is outrageous.

ORourke getting it from RTE, The Sunday Indo and Paddy Power. Looks like he's just a token GAA contributor for each as he'd have surely got the road for his negativity . For the gambling crowd , he couldn't pick his nose so maybe they're happy enough with him. Class A hypocrite.

Saw that . Fairly irrelevant. First half running back from a 45. Yellow card right call.

Kildare have only played one Division 1 team this year too. Lost by 9 points.
