Shakespeare , would have to agree with you.
From what I understand, wide open field which is in poor condition, a couple of changing rooms and nothing else.
You have two great facilities in London & Birmingham which could be used.
It's beyond a joke really

Politics I'd say. Joke. And why not Manchester.

Bizzare that BPC allowed Hugh O'Neills to play in the All-Britain knowing they fielded 2 illegal players in the Yorkshire Final and now the All-Britain Final is in Leeds. Vótáil early vótáil often men.

What's all this talk of Hugh O'Niell's play illegal players in Yorkshire final ?
By the sound of it, it has all been brushed under the carpet now anyway.
Back to the game , how will McDermotts home grown lads fair out against Connolly's ?
Anyone know if Connolly's have homegrown lads on their team at all ?
I am right in thinking that McDermotts beat them two years ago in the semi final ?

I thought Connollys beat them two years ago. Macs favourites for me.

I agree with the comments about the pitch. Should be held in Birmingham or London regardless of any 'home advantage'. With regards to the game - Connolly's forwards will be too much for Macs - DC by 6.

Some trip for Connollys down to London, would probably involve and overnight stay also. Perhaps the board could look at investing some money into developing a pitch in the Lancashire as a county pitch.
Also was at the pitch in Coventry a couple of years back where they had a good pitch and good facilities, could have been a possibility.

You are all very ignorant of the pitch at Leeds. Of all the pitches I have seen this year, Leeds has been the best. There are changing facilities and refreshments available on site (although I don't know if it was used in the All-Britain Final).

Replying To derrycitymucker:  "You are all very ignorant of the pitch at Leeds. Of all the pitches I have seen this year, Leeds has been the best. There are changing facilities and refreshments available on site (although I don't know if it was used in the All-Britain Final)."
Ignorant in thinking a GAA final should be played at a GAA pitch, with revenue for a GAA organisation on a full length GAA pitch.

Good luck to Dunedin Connolly's tomorrow in their All Ireland quarter final clash against the Ulster champions , Naomh Colmcille from Donegal.
