You mentioned Kilkenny and then came to an abrupt halt, I assumed you were talking about football when you referred to Dublin, I'm sure you have noticed things have changed considerably in the last 20 years, never mind 70 !"]So Dublin have the shelf packed with hurling trophies because of Croke Park and all their resources. It is funny that these things only surface when teams are successful. Now we have complaints about the support J.P. is giving to Limerick.
I could not care if Croke Park was out on Achill Island and Mayo got to play their games there. I am proud of our National stadium. You really think Kilkenny won't win anymore All-Ireland if others have more money and resources than them ? Like I started, it is a contributing factor but there is more to success.

You're wrong there, because they never surfaced when Kerry and Kilkenny were beating everyone around them, and I wonder why !

On one hand you are advising counties to follow Dublin's template while in the same breath you are pointing to their empty hurling trophy cabinet .

I think you're getting your small ball mixed up with your big ball, as you're all over the place to be honest.

This is is logic think as you would say yourself "to be honest" ?

The D4 media will be scutinizing the GAA this summer. And every breach of Covid guidelines will be on the front pages of the Indo and Irish Times. So please GAA fans and players be careful what you do.

last few posts show why forum needs changing and updating
quoting multiple peoples posts at one time like greengrass and several others have done in recent posts looks terrible.

the boldening of peoples posts being quoted by me isnt great but looks far better than that mess.
