    The Heineken Cup Quarter Final ???

    It now seems certain that if Munster reach the QF of this seasons Heineken Cup and get a' home' draw they will have to play it somewhere in Britain probably in Cardiff which will not be a home game . My point is is there any way that Munster can force the GAA to allow them to play the game in the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick or any other GAA ground in Ireland .Could it be done in a court of Law ???

    In a word, no.



    The GAA own the grounds and if they don't want/can't do the business, that's the end of the matter.

      Not too sure Leicester, Bourgoin, Cardiff or the Munster players will be thinking this...

        Before people start giving out about the GAA as they normally do on these threads or even continue to mention forcing their hand.

        Have we tried asking them? Maybe we have but I'd like to know first for sure.

        They allowed rugby into Croker on the basis that the national team would have to play in Engerland or something like that. The right money and keeping the province playing in Ireland might be the right incentive for them.

        Mind you since letting rugby and soccer into Croker the Gov has shafted them regardling a South Co Dublin site to share so maybe they're not feeling as generous as they once were.

          Why not play it in TP? like we have done before. I though the 20K min capacity rule only appliedtoa SF?

            Becausethomond park will be (hopefully) under redevelopment by April.


            I can pretty much predict how the rest of this thread is going to go, I'm now waiting for someone to ask about the availability of Fitzgerald Park, cos they heard from someone in a pub once that the GAA don't own it [img]smileys/rolleyes.gif[/img]


            We're just going to have to accept that we have to go to Britain, if we even get a home quarter which is in no way a foregone conclusion. The IRFU have already said the arrangement was never for the Heineken Cup. The GAA also need Croke Park throughout April for the National League Finals
            Girlfriend\'s English Boss: That Gaelic Football you lot play is a bit mad isn\'t it?

            Girlfriend: That\'s nothing, you should watch a game of hurling. Think hockey except the ball is harder, it flies around the place and the sticks have bits of metal on the end of them.

            GEB: Woah, sounds dangerous.

            GF: Yeah, you can understand why some lads wear helmets, sure people have died.

            GEB: What, from being hit in the head?

            GF: No, they were shot by the English.

              Cabbage is right. There is no chance that the clubs will get into GAA grounds. Get used to the idea of going somewhere nice.

                But has anyone actually asked about the Gaelic Grounds?

                  I agree with Cabbage. The GAA don't have to, no one can force them, would have to be pass by congress or council, etc, etc, bla, bla.......


                  It is great that some Irish Rugby games will be in CP andMAYBE after that, CP might be available in the future butI doubt that any other GAA groundwould ever be opened up, and considering that in a couple of years there should be a shiny new LR and TP, I doubt a GAA ground would have to be opened up.


                  Off to Cardiff for our QF/SF "home" games so. We might as well qualify for these games first, don't you think!

                              Both CP and the MS are far too big for QFs, a 20-30K seater would be perfect.
