Plans For New Stadium In Connacht

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Connacht rugby are redeveloping the sportsground, they say they will allow Gaelic games. But I would take this with a pinch of salt. The proposed new high performance unit should be looked at by GAA. And they should also offer Pearse stadium to the Rugby lads when sportsground is being re built.

Not sure how gaelic games will fit as stadium doesnt have space for gaelic games
In what way should new high performance unit be looked at by GAA?
Connacht wouldnt take Pearse Stadium when sportsground is being rebuilt. They'll stay in sportsground

For Public relations the GAA should offer the Pearse stadium. The rugby lads will say no, but it will look good for the GAA- who sometimes have bad P.R.

Replying To Condorman:  "Its a white elephant.Was it built to stage concerts? No."
Yes it was, that was all part of the plan building the stadium, explain how its a white elephant comparing to other GAA stadium that are rarely use, was Croke Park meant to stage every single Dublin game, no

Its longer than most, it dosn't come across on TV but there is plenty of room behind both goals.

I spend way too much time in the sportsground and the dead ball zones are not that big and the pitch isnt much bigger than typical rugby grounds
