    Let's campaign to redevelop Musgrave

    Right folks, here's your space, let's get the ball rolling on redeveloping Musgrave.

    Here's a draft letter you can send to your local councillors. Short and simple.

    Dear X,

    I am a constituent of ward Y. As a voter in your constituency I wish to register my intention to vote for the candidate who helps campaign for the redevelopment of Musgrave Park in next year's local elections.

    Musgrave Park is an essential community facility in Cork. It has hosted Munster rugby since 1940. It has hosted games against New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. Indeed, in 1992 it witnessed the famous Munster victory over the then world cup champions, Australia. More than that, it has hosted numerous schools and clubs games in its long history.

    I feel that Cork city needs to be proactive in supporting Munster rugby and I hope you agree with me.

    Is mise le meas,

    Name
    Address


    Enough with the online bitching, you want to make a difference, go off and make it.
    It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

    Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

    I'm fine with one home stadium. It's generally what happens with most teams in a lot of sports. Are they all wrong?

      Maybe so, and not to get high hat on it, if you want to discuss whether we should have a second stadium then start that thread. This is a happy space where those that want MP redeveloped can bounce around ideas on how they can help.

        My apologies, enjoy.

          Surely a campaign to get any public funding for the redevelopment of Pairc ui Chaoimh conditional on it being available for community use would be a more beneficial campaign. Could have all the big games in Cork.

            Maybe, but I reckon a redeveloped Musgrave is a more winnable battle.

                Joey, can we do this up in a Word doc, so people can just fill in and print? The easier we make it for people to do the right thing, the more likely they will.

                Do we want to add draws with the Wobblies in 1967 and the ABs in 1973, as well?

                    By "we", I meant of course, "You, sir, the technically literate wallah over there, make it so".

                      Given the nature of the boundaries, you'd have to hit a lot of places in the County, too: Carrigaline, Passage and Monkstown, Douglas, etc. Probably the whole of South Central, a good chunk of North West, and all of North Central.

                        Not my area of expertise either I'm afraid, I presume most people will just email it through? I agree a letter would be more effective and harder to ignore though.

                          I'd say do both. E-mails can be deleted, but hard copy... Keep a copy, with the date. Anyone comes to your door, stick it under their nose, point to it, and ask them what they'll do about the letter they were sent. And make a note of it, and get them to sign if you can.

                          Some of the Councillors in the City are definitely rugby-friendly. Jim Corr taught enough Munster players, FFS!
