    I know the GAA did well form hiring out Croke Park to the IRFU but did the higher attendences more than compensate the irfu for
    rent that was paid

      Incorporate the AIL/UBL clubs into the development of the players.

      Don't think the r'ship is broken between the fans and the club/team.
      Stand up and fight

        Munster make a fortune from hospitality and concessions in TP. The GAA would get all that from a match in PUC. Add in rent and and the fact that for a Euro quarter final the away team get a chunk of the gate money too and Munster wouldn't make as much as you think.

        Plus if they had ever wanted to move to a GAA ground for a quarter final there's a 50000 capacity stadium just down the road from TP. They've never even considered the option for the reasons given above.

          The AIL is incorporated into the development of players already. Look at current academy players - all playing AIL. Jack O Donoghue was playing AIL with UL Bohs before he progressed into the senior set up with Munster. What do you want to change about AIL and development of players?

            Fair enough.
            You'd think that all income from a match/event could be factored in.

            Especially as I was just reading the other day that the gaelic grounds are now a financial drain on Limerick GAA.
            Many people expect the new PUC to be the same for Cork GAA.
            There aren't enough big crowd games in Munster GAA for all the stadia they have.

                  Read the David Wallace article in the Examiner last week..he more or less said get rid of the B&I cup and concentrate on the AIL to pick up the late developer..he said if he was starting now days he would miss the boat as he didn't develop until his 20s and wouldn't have got into the academy and many more like him..

                    Getting rid of the British and Irish Cup isn't going to happen though and you still have the AIL for late developers but British and Irish Cup acts as a bridge between AIL and pro12.

                        He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                          So because some people didn't need a bridge we should get rid of the bridge? Right...

                            Different era for your examples and because some don't need that step you propose to improve things by removing the step?
                            That doesn't make any sense.

                                Yes, I think the irfu were able to pay the rent for CP out of the extra tickets they could sell for the game.

                                Which brings us nicely to the business case for PUC. It will be a (mostly) brand new stadium, so people will want to go there. As for the hospitality, extra revenue, etc surely this can be negotiated into the deal as this is revenue PUC would not get otherwise e.g. Munster Rugby get 50%of all profits from hospitality at the ground, etc Lastly, PUC i is in the second biggest city i in the state and by far the biggest in Munster and that helps filling grounds on big match days.

                                I guess when revenues & funds are tight you can stick your head in the sand &hope they will. Improve, or you can actually do something constructive & innovative to try to improve things. Munster's choice?!
