The Prentybubble?

IMO proper investment as you describe regarding resources to ensure that games have the highest possibility of being played as fixtured needs to happen at not just one venue but at a venue in each province given the number of fixtures there are across the four codes or we are back to square one.
Granted Connacht have the Dome but the spectator capacity is limited. just look at the number of Sigerson fixtures postponed during the week and pitch inspections today at the AG and Pairc Esler for the McKenna Cup Final. Due to Climate Change is there a possibility that this could be the normal where waterlogged and frozen pitches are just to be expected on a more regular basis. I would have thought that currently the AG in Ulster, O'Moore Park in Leinster, Semple in Munster and McHale Park in Connacht would be candidates for winter proofing. Could/should be included in the Casement build.  If there isn't a strategy in place for this there should most definitely be.

is it not kinda of a disgrace that rte are not showing senior club championship finals  they are one of this biggest games in GAA  and its probably harder to win a club all ireland than an inter county.

The Prentybubble?

The Prentybubble shows that the technology is getting there. A roof that connected to stands would be the business.
Such a thing would make Casement a different proposition also. I know these things have been in use in N. AMerica for 50 years and have had some problems, usually with snow, but technology must be improving.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Why? Tg4 show games all year. It would be more of a disgrace if they did show them. I would suspect itís a contract thing anyway.

Rte done little for the club game outside of Dublin club games just recently and the odd Leinster if a Dublin team involved. Tg4, run the thing for yrs when no-one else would touch it.
