To get back to the topic, yes it is embarrassing that our county board were so opposed to opening up Croker, I mean you can understand the Northern counties being against it, because of Crossmaglen and all that but we're at the other end of the island from them FFS.
It's even more surprising 'cause every intercounty Cork GAA player/manager who is asked about it said they are in favour of it (ie Joe Deane and John Allen to name two).

As for the lack of hurling, I blame the drumlins. Fierce hard on the old sliothars, are the drumlins.
Yeah, I was talking about hurling. There's obviously a massive market for the GAA in the north. Look at the crowds who follow the football. Surely some of them could be encouraged to pick up a hurley.

You're probably some bastard offspring of a garrison town.
and you're probably a cunt. Just what the GAA needs take the Gaelic out of the game...what a muppet.

3 weak provinces. The decline in leinster hurling standards outside of kilkenny in recent years is most alarming. It's very hard for hurling to get a foothold in the northern counties, where it is often seen as a hindrance to football by most of the bigger clubs.This of course is total bollox but thats how they see it. With the introduction of a national hurling officer in the form of Paudie Butler, I'd be optimistic that this attitude towards hurling in many counties will change, but it will take a long time for it to happen.
