If they were putting their 17th and 33rd clubs in and sweeping up the Intermediate and Junior titles there would be plenty complaining.
If you look at Kerry at the other extreme where their 9th club is going into Intermediate.

I don't think they would be complaining. I remember in 07 Ballinagh played Fingal Ravens in the All Ireland Intermediate Semi final in Navan. It was a good competitive game. They won the All Ireland intermediate after that.

Dublin have changed their stance since then. And I doubt Dublins 33rd club would be walking Junior level. A lot of weak clubs in Dublin after the top 20 or so.

I hope I live to see the day Ros CB will be applying for planning for a Centre! where teams might be able to train.....

Dublin GAA granted planning permission for €6.6million centre of excellence

To match the cluster in the Spawell they are building.

How did we survive without these clusters?

Building two at the same time is largesse we don't need.  Remember there is also Abbotstown

Hollystown GC is at least closed. The Spawell has bars, restaurant, golf, astro, tennis and a load of smaller business like hairdressers. All will be evicted and at leat 100 jobs gone. For a third cluster.

If only they'd sit on their hands whinging the various Dublin Councils would give them loads of free stuff....

Not sure I follow, but both NAMA sales to the DCB for our new 'clusters' were, ahem, intersting.

Jobs gone is bollix. People get their hair cut, if not in one place than somewhere else. Likewise with drinking.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

That attitude will go down very well with the locals who are losing amenities

850k a team? There are professional soccer clubs spending less. I would love to see that spending breakdown.

Joyce and his team? Few nights in Dublin hotels? Wouldn’t be long adding up but 2 million is some coin

They have Hurley stuff as well which they're quite good at ;)
And they don't get 90% of their games at home.

Would be huge travelling expenses for all of the Connacht counties with the majority of their players living, working or studying in Dublin or elsewhere.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose
