Replying To riverboys:  "Tuam Stadium was a kip hole 20 years ago and still is, nothing has changed, no wonder Galway county matches were moved to Salthill"
Even it was in need of work 20 years ago Tuam Stadium was the best Gaelic football venue in Connacht. Not so much the grounds but it being in the middle of Tuam made for a very special match day atmosphere. Arguably one of the best championship matchdays in the country. With the folklore of Tuam Stars and Jarlaths it was miles ahead of Salthill in terms of GAA heritage. Salthill is afine stadium but ultimately it's a pitch in a posh housing estate, miles from town, with little or no match day atmosphere. Hopefully someday they'll revamp Tuam Stadium and bring the magic back.

Replying To suckvalleypaddy:  "It looked like Ballybrit in fairness. What was the story behind no National Anthem at a Connacht Final, are we declaring independence out in the wild west? Tuam 'Stadium" looks like an abandoned chip van from the 1950's, total joke."
oh yes Ballybrit with all the fence jumping
