I'm under the impression that either the losers of Connacht & Munster should they win their R4 game will play 2 games in Croker; One as a neutral venue and other will be because of Dublins home game.

No neutral venues in Super 8.  Round 1 games will both be in Croke Park (provincial champs play each other).  Round 2 games will be at provincial winners home.  Round 3 games will be hosted by teams 3 and 4 (the beaten provincial finalist or the team that beat them in the last round of qualifiers).

Is round 2 the winners of round 1 meeting?

Its like we are goin round and round here.

Its just a simple question, what is the fooking name of Dublins home ground ?

Will Kildare host a game in Newbridge if they get to the Super 8?  If their ground is deemed unsuitable based on crowd expectations, I'm sure they will opt for Croke Park as an alternative.

Likewise, if Dublin expect crowd issues at Parnell Park, I'm sure a request to use Croke Park instead will be given a fair hearing.

That must be frustrating.  If only someone knew the answer to this headscratcher.

Round 1 is the neutral ground round. Provincial winners play each other in CP. Other 4 play each other in CP as well.

Meanwhile for the less than Super

I see the new president is a bit of a turkey. Trying to solve a systematic problem with a format change. But of course he’s a figurehead so his opinion doesn’t really count for much anyways.

I was wondering if the Super 8s would benefit Mayo. The team has lost 3 finals by a single point.

I think it will benefit Galway! They will get to play a championship game in Croke Park without a win or bust scenario and this might help them get over their Croke Park Hoodoo! A weight that has been hanging over their heads for 17 years now!

Thanks for that input hound and I understand its not Dublin making up the rules .

Can I just have the name of Dublins home ground ?
Parnell Park is Dublin's home ground.

Like home grounds in some other counties its capacity isn't great for big grounds, so games get played in Croke Park. So while the hurlers play some home games in Parnell Park every year, the footballers haven't played there in quite a while (perhaps when we drew London in the qualifiers). So in recent years all the home games of the Dublin senior football team get played in Croke Park.

Certainly more Leinster QF and SF games should be played outside Croke Park, but the counties in Leinster like the money the Dublin fans generate when games are in Croke Park, and it takes a lot of persuasion to get even the very odd Dublin game moved out.

The point I was trying to make and should have been more clearer is that one of the teams coming through a R4 qualifier will have 2 games in Croker.
