Relatively remote location??? It's in the middle of one of the most populated areas in Dublin. The following GAA Clubs are in a 5km radius of the Spawell:
Judes, Faughs, Crumlin, Ballyboden, St. Anne's, Thomas Davis, St. John's, Templogue Synge St., St. Marks, Ballyboden Wanderers, Good Council, Round Towers, etc. etc. The likes of Kilmacud, Olafs etc. Only 5-10km away. I'm sure if it was built & relatively decent crowds were going, a shuttle service from the city centre wide beset up. On a Saturday night or Sunday afternoon a bus would take about 20 mins to get from City Centre to Spawell.....not exactly the 3 day camel ride some are claiming!
