Replying To MTS:  "Sure Tuam will be sorted when the county board give them the floodlight for votes."
I don't think there's flood lighting in either venues

I would prefer the games be in Tuam as much as possible as it's closer for me and I just feel it has better atmosphere when it's a packed Tuam stadium rather than an empty Pearse.

But I don't understand people's obsession with getting away early after matches.

Seeing people leave in droves early baffles me. I mean, you've committed to the day out to support your county and watch the match.

What is so exciting in your home life that you're in such a hurry back? :)

You're likely to sit around discussing the match and having a post mortem on this anyway so why not see the full game and take your time driving home and chatting about the match?

Family time is on a premium these days anyway with people either sat in front of a TV or busy with work.

Some of my best childhood memories are travelling to and from games discussing the matches and I'd wish the car journey would last hours longer.

Replying To rhudson:  "I get the feeling if there was enough people interested
We could raise a huge amount to get money to get Tuam Stadium up graded
Getting a major company or sponsor on board too would help
Im sure PJ must have some good contacts too
Now just to add I live in the city but would rather Tuam anyday"
If that was the case, then DAFTs would have surpassed their targets a long time ago.

And that isn't to say they haven't hit their targets. They have received fantastic support. Theres only so much fundraising can do.
