Wouldnt let the p***k through the gates, you wouldn't get 5 nites in the aviva, the posh residents wouldn't stand for it. I suppose can eliminate amateur status from the GAA  as a
 organisation.

They could give the extra cash to Tyrone and maybe U16s can see a cship match for free next year!!!

No, from what I am reading from coaching grants, if Galway complaint is correct, is that 35% of grants go to Dublin. Can't understand how other counties stand for it.

One artist over 5 nights is ripping the hole clean out of it.

I'm just surprised that he can generate that many fans! I wouldn't watch him if he was playing in my garden

The thought of the big fat ghoul blurbing out "I've got friends in low places" and sung along by lord knows how many thousands of Tir Eoooiinn voices, I think if I was a local resident I'd burn Croke Park down..

I think it's only fair to point out that not all Tyronies believe that Brooks is/was the second coming.

Brooks get 5 nights in Croker, how has things changed?

A large majority of the residents are furious the gigs are going ahead. Aiken promotions held a meeting and told the residents they had confirmed 2 gigs and were looking to confirm another 3. Residents were told licencing laws have changed so they couldn't go to court like they did the last time to stop the shows. Cocky twats were only short of gloating about it.

Wouldn't give a guarantee that croker would be limited to 3 concerts per year anymore either from 2022 onwards
Iwhile garth isn't my cup an tae. What do these residents expect  they live beside a stadium that was there long b4 any off them were. Live with it. Sorry if that sounds harsh but it's reality. Thry knew where was a stadium there.

Usage of Croke Park has fundamentally changed since tbe rebuild. We have gone from 8 games a year to dozens, some under lights, with gigs and conferences

They live beside a sports stadium, not a concert venue. Residents understand how it works for the GAA, but its different for concerts. Drunken fools pissing in doorways at 11pm on their way home is not something anyone signs up for

First concert was nearly 40 years ago and it been going ever since, I can understand if people have lived their longer. but stop with the nonsense. You buy a house near a river expect it to flood the odd time, you buy your house near a concert venue, expect it to be full of people, also expect people pissing in the street, its up to the police to police that.
Infrequently. There was 9 years between gigs. The blocks of 5 nights are recent.

Be carnage if it does!! when is it? I doubt it, having continual lockdowns won't work. Improved vaccines will have to be the way forward otherwise what's the point? If this virus continues to mutate and become the new small pox the scientists will have to come up with better ways of medicating you if you get it and better preventive methods..

Its getting like the film (which I liked a the time) 12 Monkeys !

September I think. Imagine the scenes if it doesn't go ahead... again. Interestingly Paddy Power offering odds of 4/1 it all gets cancelled.

When was Croke Park only 8 games a year?
It has always been in regular use.

Before the rebuild. Dubs, Leinster x2, Leinster Final, 4x semi finals and 2x finals. So 9 games plus replays. Some cumann na mbunscoil stuff during the day, but nothing like current use.

The idea that locals knew there was a stadium there and should zip it is half the story and quite simply no other sports have these persistent resident problems
