    I get that, but still, is it the biggest factor? Leinster championship matches were held in Croke Park in any case.

    While it's not the same thing, I remember a previous successful incarnation of Clare hurling in the late 1970s that won National Leagues, played all their hurling league matches in Tulla and were unbeaten there for a number of seasons. For understandable reasons there was resistance to moving matches to Ennis, but it happened.

    Is maintaining two county grounds in Offaly sustainable?
    Offaly played Kilkenny in Tullamore a few years ago, in the first Sky Sports game.

    That attendance would have fitted into Birr and the joint would have been hoppin'.

    As far as I recall, Clare played in Tulla while Cusack Park was being rebuilt.

    ​​​​​​I don't see what extra costs would be incurred by playing games in Birr rather than Tullamore. Even if there were such costs, they would be more than made up for in increased attendances not to mention the increased Goodwill that would result.

      I have a question...

      In Hurling, which is the best team in Ireland at the end of the year, considering you succeeded in creating TWO competitioins in the same year? The winner of the National Hurling League (Limerick this year), or the winner of the All Ireland Senior Hurling Championship?
      Trying to understand something to Gaeilge, I woud already have been persuaded that you are complicated, but TWO competitions in the same season, conceed it, it's quiet a strange thing... :_wave__rvmp_by_bad_

        The Championship takes priority over the League, JN
        "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

        Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

          The league is the dress-rehearsal for the real thing Dax. Some things don't translate...

                    It's buckin' cold in the North Stand in the Páirc. They should never have put a roof on it.

                    Tipp have done all the hurling so far and lead by a point having played against the substantial wind.

                    Here's hoping.

                      Tipp deservedly gave Cork a trimmin' today. Seven points in the end but it could (should) have been a lot more

                      It was bad to see Aidan Walsh and I can't remember who else coming on as subs in the last ten minutes and being sent to the edge of the square.

                      It wasn't at the edge of the square that Cork lost it. The half forwards were severely schooled. That and the short puck-outs that lost three or four points.

                      Not to worry, the stake isn't through the heart yet. Up to Limerick next day.

                        Great championship match in Limerick. Cork benefited from having had a game but still the champions will be disappointed to be beaten at home. It will be interesting to see how they respond to what was a heavy beating.
                        Sometimes I think that hurling is becoming a free feast and the ref made it that in the first half. He copped himself on at half time and the second half was much better.

                            Well done cork. But limerick were very flat.

                              Waterford looking at a 2nd year of exiting early, Tipp excellent at times, can switch off, have to go to Ennis next, result there will see how they are in reality.
                              Cork, even more bi-polar, should beat Waterford, Clare match might decide who between them joins Waterford on the Summer J1's in the USA, that said, Tipp win in Ennis would leave Clare with a must win in Limerick... and after yesterday, Limerick don't look to be the 2 in a row team everyone was saying they were just last month.

                                Thought Coleman was excellent, O'Leary very good also. Kearney and Cadogan obviously class, hard to pick a Cork player who didnt play well.
