Has anyone here actually been stopped bringing a bottle into croke park?

I've been at 4 games over the last few weeks in croker and never yet been stopped from bringing bottles (with caps on) into the ground.

Nope. I brought in bottles of water and snacks for the kids last week. No issue. I had them in a wee drawstring bag (https://www.oneills.com/oneills-gaa-gym-bag.html) but I saw a few people with backpacks inside.

Does anyone know If there is any provisions in place for someone who is in their 80s to get to croke park from drumconda without walking .. the said person will always get a good seat but the walking to croke park is taking its toll ? 
I'm trying to decide on a really meaningful message..

I  think There is a disabled  car park  behind the davin stand .
This connects directly to ground with accessible lifts.
I'd contact croke park for pass arrangements.

I took a 10kg travel bag in last week.
There was a bag check.
Girl said that it was the last week that it would be allowed.
HOWEVER
THERE IS NO MENTION OF IT IN THE GROUND REGULATIONS OR ON THE TICKETS OR ON E TICKET

If you could persuade them to take a wheelchair, I am sure you could leave it secure during the game.

Last week, umbrellas were being confiscated and put into blue wheelie bins.  While there is no place for umbrellas at a game blocking views and dripping onto the people behind, it would be a loss to some to have their golfing umbrella confiscated on entry to the ground when there was no warning beforehand.

And the week before that they were filling the blue wheelie bins with bags.

I had a small rucksack with me and had it checked.

All they were looking for was cans of drink as far as I could see by the contents of the table.

They may have unofficially relaxed those rules it seems.

They're next on the banned list, along with those Confederates flags.
