Croke Park is today the setting for an outdoor celebration of Eid Al Adha, one of the most important religious events in the Muslim Religious calendar.
When the event was announced it was hoped that the limit for attendance at an outdoor event would have risen to 500 but it has remained at 200. As a result there is a reduced attendance today in Croke Park.
“I believe the staging of this celebration fully supports our commitment to inclusion and a GAA welcome linked to our belief that it’s ‘Where We All Belong’,” said GAA President John Horan when the event was announced.
What a moment!. @officialgaa opens its historical @CrokePark for Muslims to celebrate and pray in #EidAladha2020. This is Ireland, the accepting, the tolerant, the diverse and the beautiful homeland and for all. #عيد_الاضحى pic.twitter.com/ty3cxYO9RF— Razan Ibraheem (@RazanIbraheem_) July 31, 2020
