Hang on a sec. Wasn't the whole idea of the Spring Series & playing the games at Croke Park, the DCB's idea?
Back in 2010, (or thereabouts) Andy Kettle and Co came up with the idea of the big Springtime razamatazz at Croker & they pay HQ rent to hire out the facility for the night.
The CCCC weren't the ones to come up with that brain wave, were they?
They dictate that the games must be in Dublin, but as PP and Croker both have flood lights, they aren't terribly arsed which venue hosts the games, as long as its in Dublin. Or so I thought !
