Take them to Ballycastle, the most northern part of the county. They'll never cope with the wind and rain, even in June  ;)

Louth came off a complete battering by the dubs and were in poor form when we beat them. Hopefully Kildare will be similarly depleted in morale- another great opportunity to take a bigger scalp as far as I'm concerned. The lads will be growing in confidence and, as Paddy McBride has tweeted, #WhiterockOrNowhere

Seems only sensible that we play our home tie in a home venue.  What is Corrigan's official capacity and are there any other grounds in the county that can hold greater numbers with sign off & approvals from police/health and safety?    All ticket affair then

We got battered too so were coming from a similar place.

I wonder would it be all ticket. Not much time to sort out the logistics of that. Is the safety check a capacity check?

think Brendan Crossen was saying on twitter that it would be 2000 capacity. it will be an all ticket game at that rate then.

I dont know what the safe capacity is for Corrigan at all tbh. Someone here might know better

 :P lol

id say Kildare will have a large support for the game so 2000 wouldnt cover everyone who wants to go to the game.

Corrigan seems to have passed approvals from police/health and safety etc according to Antrims twitter.

Seems to be all systems go

Following a meeting this morning between representatives of the Antrim County Committee, Ulster GAA and Belfast City Council (certifying authority) it has agreed that Corrigan Park can host the All-Ireland qualifier game v Kildare on 22 June.

It will be an all ticket game with a capacity on the day of 2,122.

You guys should be on buying 10 tickets each and selling them on to Antrim folk. Don't let a Kildare man near the place and turn it into a fortress.
