My personal preference is The Palace Bar on Fleet Street. Owners and staff all Gaa mad and you'll often find a number of past players in there having a drink when the big Championship days come around.

BrianMac why isn't your man from Faugh's starting for the 21 hurlers tomorrow evening? Palace is a good spot if you like drinking outside.

Theres no concrete evidence he wont play. Bit of a dummy team id say. ORoinn Broinn is no corner back. With Bennett I suspect hell start or well see what we saw in the earlier games with Cian Boland and Bennett will come on around the 20 minute mark

Meaghers is the gaa pub of all pubs.
the banner outside that covers the place says it all "The home of the Dubs"

Mind you I wouldn't go to watch any match in a pub unless it was a last resort.
If you actually want to watch the game a pub is worst place ever full of drunks and people getting in the way.
Reminds me if the time I had to go to the stand to watch games when the hill was being revamped in the early 00tys.
would have been better off at home

Always was as you rightly point out banner is correct, an interesting spot, in the day when players went for a pint that is where they would go.

Ive found the Sunnybank in Glasnevin to be a great spot for showing all GAA matches even when clashing with other big fixtures, a good spot for the GG's also if your into it.
