My own club have played several hurling games there in the past month and to a man they preferred it to a grass pitch at this time of year. It’s a shame games are being shoehorned into December and that’s another story but the 4g pitch is a fine facility.

Agree, was at 2 games over last 2 months and no complaints from players. Some posters have agendas and always make excuses when the sons team loses.

Might as well have built a grass pitch for all the complaining done.
Would all the players you say have been complaining rather have played on a heavy, half frozen grass pitch? Isn't the benefit of it that you can play fast direct hurling and not worry about the ball being stuck down a hole or the hurley lifting a pile of mud along with the ball?
The long season is not ideal for sure, but this type of facility allows games to go ahead that may not be possible otherwise.
I agree the 4G is better than playing in the mud and shit but the solution here is to simply play this off earlier in the year when conditions are better. The year is just too long for these young lads. I think the 4G pitches can be beneficial for a limited amount of training ( worth checking how many times the Cork senior hurlers or U20s actually train there ) and some games but at adult level it just seems false to play a competitive championship game on this surface as it is very difficult to execute the tackle correctly and the risk of injury is higher. Bottom line is U21 is prioritized as bottom of the pile in Cork hurling and it shows.

So many fixtures - so little time
Esp in Cork
I think the decision not to play games mid week earlier in year was the right one, there was grief last year when ONeills ended up playing a succession of games in a short period of time - you have to factor in player welfare but as RHB says at this point there’s actually mental fatigue st this age group playing so long and so late in Winter

U/21 always gets squeezed - first thing they should do is get rid of back door - straight knock out - end of

Not wild about 4G given stories of injuries

Where would we be without the 4g. Thank you Frank for your vision.

A few have packed it in and a few are injured, when we won the minor 2 years ago, 3 u16's and an u15 were playing
