              because Killarney is owned by the GAA and the only GAA ground that is open is Croke Park

                  Geez, if the GAA grounds were available, why not Páirc Uí Caoimh? Far better stadium & bigger capacity than Fitzgerald's. Or Thurles?

                    Not stirring either, but Hooke said on Wed night that Killarney is not owned by the GAA - they just lease it.

                    Maybe he's wrong (he often is!!!), but it'd be great if we could play a POTENTIAL Q/F in Ireland..................................

                      I think this debate should be dropped until we finsih the job and secure the home 1/4 final next week...


                      But realistically,if we were to get a home tie,agaisnt the likes of Wasps again, then Croker would surely be the only place big enough here to hold it...


                      I hear the ladyboyz talk of a double header if both of us have to play our home 1/4's away...are they having a laugh?Tickets would be a prob for most grounds for us if there is another game on the same day...even allowing for the fact that all the D4 tickets would be ours also....

                          No hes wrong, Cardiff Matt has written a thesis on the ownership of the
                          stadium which is somewhere on the new site. iirc there are a whole heap
                          of owners but the majority are GAA.

                            from matt:



                            Dr. Crokes were the instigators and original owners of @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Fitzgerald@@@@/SPAN> @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Stadium@@@@/SPAN>. The Crokes club decided to build a memorial park for Dick @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Fitzgerald@@@@/SPAN>
                            who was a former chairman and captain and who died in 1930. Crokes
                            raised most of the money and also got contributions from the Munster
                            and Central Councils. In 1932 they purchased the site on which @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Fitzgerald@@@@/SPAN> @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Stadium@@@@/SPAN> now stands for £750.



                            The old chestnut of who owns / controls @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Fitzgerald@@@@/SPAN> @@@@SPAN ="highlight">stadium@@@@/SPAN> arose when other East Kerryclubs got worried over 60 years ago that Crokes had total control of the @@@@SPAN ="highlight">stadium@@@@/SPAN>, i.e. they owned it. Crokes always maintained that all East Kerry clubs could use it.



                            To get around this problem, two committees were formed. The Board of Trustees and the @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Stadium@@@@/SPAN> Committee. The @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Stadium@@@@/SPAN>
                            Committee looks after the maintenance and administration of the ground.
                            The Board of Trustees look after every other aspect of the ground. The
                            Board has 5 members, one each from -



                            Central Council, Munster Council, Kerry County Board, Dr. Crokes and the @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Stadium@@@@/SPAN> Committee.



                            In effect all this means that Dr. Crokes still actually own @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Fitzgerald@@@@/SPAN> @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Stadium@@@@/SPAN> and it is run by two committees (as people were afraid Crokes wouldn't allow access), which comprise of GAA members.



                            It most definatly is not a municipal @@@@SPAN ="highlight">stadium@@@@/SPAN>, nor council owned, nor privately owned and is fully vested in the GAA. If other GAA @@@@SPAN ="highlight">stadium@@@@/SPAN> in the country were opened up there would still be a problem with @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Fitzgerald@@@@/SPAN> @@@@SPAN ="highlight">Stadium@@@@/SPAN>
                            as the committees would have to agree to open aswell and then there is
                            always Dr. Crokes, the actual owners, lurking in the background...
