Dubs getting fed up?

I can see why they need Croker for the big crowds.

Parnell Park only holds 13.5K, so you're right there.

Iím aware that Parnell isnít big enough for 20k, but neither is it a big enough crowd to justify opening Croker. I donít have Eir but Iíd say the atmosphere was sh*te compared to a full crowd in Parnell Park as well.

I'd agree with you about the atmosphere.

The atmosphere was fine for the game, people who wanted to be out of the wet could do so and obviously the broadcast would be much better from CP than PP.

They'll be hoping for 30,000+ for Dublin v Kerry in a few weeks. Croke Park is pretty awful when it's around 20,000. Next year a Friday night game in Parnell against a Tipperary if they get promoted or some team similar... I think it would be a great occasion and the TV would be all over it. I know there'd be issues about players and work which would be justified but its just an idea.

Good crowd, filthy weather in the capital city from 4pm-6pm. No hurling in first match this week, the Ladies bt Cork.

Didn't hear any official figures for the Hyde - looked like approaching 3,000.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

I heard a load of buzz about Bohemians vs. Shamrock rovers last night and how there was a huge crowd in Dalymount.
Some league of Ireland chap was on the radio this morning, and he said (with massive enthusiasm), "There must have been nearly 4000 there!"
Fair play to them, but I think sometimes we underestimate how well attended our own games are.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

3,640 were at it but in fairness, it sold out two weeks ago. Could have certainly got 6,000 if they were had the capacity for it. Dalymount is currently restricted to using 2 stands.
