CP execs are rubbing their hands at this.

Only a matter of time before all food and drink are banned from being taken in. Another example of the €€€€ coming before the people

Seriously? You think that's what this is about?
It took all of nine replies. ;D ;D ;D

Jaysus I'd be a vocal critic of the GAA's decisions which seem to be out to maximise revenue streams at the expense of competition fairness or whatever, but I don't think this is one of those. You'd fit a fair amount of food into a small rucksack, I bring one to Thurles the whole time.

Also, we did the tour of Croke Park on Saturday with 40+ kids, and it was  €11 for them to do it, including a hot lunch, so I thought they were very reasonable because the tour is excellent as well. I don't think it's always just about the money, and I'd like to think this is just best practice for security and comfort. Lets be honest a big rucksack in Croker is a pain in the arse for all the other people around as you end up horsing around getting stuff out of it, moving it to let people out etc.

What?  :o With everything that happened in the UK and France recently, plus Ireland being listed by ISIS as a high target, it's a necessary course of action.

Why was Hawkeye only in Croke Park?

Croke Park is a way bigger target than every other ground in the country too. Can't believe anyone would try to be too smart for school and try to overthink this one.

Checking 83,000 people isn't easy.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

What sort of yokes are you putting in kids bags that you'd need it to be bigger than A4-sized?

Actually maybe don't answer that.

Something could easily happen outside as inside. Jones' Road is thronged with fans on big days. How would you police that? No bags allowed beyond the motorways?

What kind of nonsensical argument is that? You can't expect people to stop living, but it's hardly too much not to ask people to take a bag into a location with 82,000+ people.

If something happens elsewhere in the city, that is not the responsibility of the GAA.

So a bomb in a backpack in croke park will do more damage than a bomb in a backpack in Clones?

I don't expect people to stop living. I'm merely saying that anyone intent on doing damage will do damage. They know things are tighter security so what's to stop them doing damage outside a stadium like Croke Park? And there could be more damage done there than inside. Yes bag checks is good, but that only protects people in the stadium. The blast in Manchester wasn't actually in the arena, don't forget.

83000 people won't all have backpacks, I'd say maybe 5% would at a guess although Armagh people would probably have more to carry in their buckfast.
