Fair play to all, seemed like a good event. I imagine ManU fans in particular would have enjoyed it, some great moments from the class of 92, even an ABU like me loved the banter between Butt and Neville!

Although, given it was played in a GAA ground, it was sticking out that Dublin still managed to win it!

Wonder how much will be raised and what they will do with the money? Was a figure released does anyone know?

I hope the Cork county board got their 30 pieces of silver anyway

every sport gets grants and it doest mean they no longer have any control over what happens their stadiums or facilities.that is a complete red herring

Who did they sell out . read a history book on the GAA will ye.
they opened the pitch to a crowd of backslapping  millionaires i what even they were ashamed to call a charity match .it was a PR excercize  most of them could easily written a cheque to cover what was made in ticket sales .  Soccer Is  the major competitor to the GAA and allowing them to Freeload on the stadiums built by hard Working GAA Club members while John Delaney pockets a fortune every year to lead what they claim is the biggest sport in the country which does not own one decent pitch and any decent players are sent aboard
ts vey sad That a young family man like Liam Miller died but playing a match in PUC will not do anything to alleviate that ,

Let it go. The fact so many players turned up for this to me shows how popular he was with his teamates. If you're so bitter you can't let a wdiow and kids have a day dedicated to their husband/father then I feel sorry for you.

Its not a red herring. The specific document they signed explicitly ceding control has been linked to. Cork County Board took money explicitly on the agreement they would host events like this.

It was a chatiry event, for a hospice, and you have no idea what individuals contributed.

You are blaming Delaney because there is more money in English soccer than Irish? Really? Out of interest what does his GAA equivalent earn?

They own plenty of decent stadia, thats a red herring. They just dont need a 45,000 seater in Cork. The place they have there is fit for purpose and better than most county grounds.

Its not about 'allieviating' his death. It was abour Cork celebrating him and making money for the hospice he died in. That this offends you says more about you then them. Duff wasnt completely wrong, you need watching.

Rosnarun  isn't the only one who "needs watching" .
The " great Gael" Brigín is showing his soccer loving narrow mindedness again.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Soccer assosciations dont generally own stadia, usually the clubs do. The FAI as far as I know own (half) of LR, Turners Cross, Deacy Park and United Park. But my point was LoI faciities are the same as county grounds. Some good, some bad, some terrible, and rarely full. The difference is size, why would they build bigger?

I recall that. During a hurricane was it not? Is there a point there?

Yeah, thinking that the GAA ballsed this up makes me the narrow minded one. Thinking that hating soccee should not guide GAA policy meams I love it.

I was ok with soccer b4 this fiasco and ok with this match being played in PuC, Croker being opened up, and Healy being used inn 98.

But some of crap that has come from the soccer crowd has made me think twice about that. The entitlement and self righteousness they have displayed makes me think fuk em for any future tournaments they want to hold using GAA grounds.

I would say very few soccer grounds are up to most county ground standards.
