You have to also consider access to these pitches i.e. ability to effectively operate a gate.
Apologies. Balgriffin certainly much better than commercials
Very limited parking for a county final.
its ok for them when every other pitch is closed and repairing after a long year as it has lights and is pretty secluded. When pitches and weather picks up they move out of there asap to st claires
The consensus here is that there are numerous alternatives to Rathcoole. Maybe the DCB will see sense and re-fix , if not, im sure the eventual winners of this championship will hold Rathcoole dear to their hearts for a long time. The losers… definitely won’t!
Congrats to Marks on beating Scoil and getting promoted to Senior B. Fantastic progress
Still to play Cuala in the final, don’t they?
Yeh, but their promoted.
St. Marks 2-15 v 2-13 Scoill Ui Chonaill FT.
Consensus doesn’t get fixtures played. Pitches do. Pitches that are available. There are many pitches in Dublin but very few that are available for use as a neutral venue. Those that are selected are selected because they are available.
Who won the Junior B final today?
That’s a great win for St Marks today against Scoil. Very impressive. Fair play…
Cuala by 4 after extra time.
@Boarddelegate1 how is it that Parnell Park has suddenly become available for a senior final replay on Sunday but was not available for the Intermediate final which is in Rathcoole on the same day so?
Should be played as a curtain raiser to the Senior Final Replay
of course it should. Maybe it will be now but fixing it for Rathcoole last week now seems unfair to both teams contesting this final.
It’s a farce putting it on in rathcoole in the first place. On another note the u16 a hurling final is on nov 3rd in Parnell so the Leinster match must be in O’Toole Park.
Couldn’t agree more with you all. Both teams deserve a proper venue for a county final. Fingers crossed the DCB listen to the fans and players of the hurling community and give them the 14:00 slot in Parnell Park before the senior county final.
