Any pre-championship run-out in Croker are always welcome especially for any new members of the Kerry panel that Pat O'Shea might unveil in the next few weeks, we dont get to play the Dubs there too much so it should be a good day out. However cant see too many from the Kingdom making the long expensive trek. It will be handy for all the ex-pat animals in the Pale though.

Looking forward to it.

What Mulvihill said, is that if both Kerry and Dublin are both still in the running for the league (i.e. a meaningful match for both teams), then it might be a possibility.
So I wouldn't assume it will be there. As Kerry Mike said, it's unlikely the Kerry crowd would bother to travel in large numbers

Anyway, long story short... is a phrase whose origins are complicated and rambling.

ouch...low blow there gnevin.

Shure tis a good day you get to play in an AI final, the amount of support or noise they make is not what gets you there, its the performance of 15 lads kicking a bag of air around the field that matters, of course we have our fair weather supporters but every county has them, will the Sold Out signs be out for all Dublins home games this league?

not going to happen we're happy enough to play in parnell- kerry supporters wouldn't watch kerry in their own back gardens in a league game - mullvihill should keep his big gob shut an odd time rather than uttering such utter tosh.

I was at Dublin v Monaghan last year, and there was as many Monaghan people in Parnell park as there was dubs...

It would be good to play Dublin in our home ground alright.
