Was there as much hooha about dublin playing heir home games at CP between 1996 and 2010?
All three of them?

I suppose the GAA would have been better off without those 218,000 spectators coming through the gates of Croke Park for those three games, and the resulting money generated.

Far too elitist.

Would have been much better if they had been played in front of a cumulative 27,000 in Parnell Park.

You have lost me with this
Dublin played three home league games at Croke Park between 1996 and 2010. The cumulative attendance at those three games was 218,000.

I don't remember any objections.

The basic aim of our association is the promotion of our games. I believe P Duffy should be judged on how well he did this.
I would agree with AZoffaly in that his intentions are right but focused on the wrong part of the GAA.
All changes, motions should be judged on the basic aim. More money and more fans going to games do promote our games. But the best promotion is participating in our games.  I believe more intercounty games make it more difficult for participation at other levels.

As long as Jarlath Burns doesn't get in the door. He's been lining up a run for a long time

I wonder is it any coincidence that Duffy only announced his intention to retire after Gilroy was in the race for the Dublin hurlers job.

But nobody believed him. He wasn't called An Uachtarain at the school for nothing. He has been preparing the ground for many years politicking Unionists and the Shinners.

Didn't realise that. Apologies and have removed it.
