Just wondering is the management of this stadium always this bad. I was at the Galway cork hurling match the week end, we were in our seats early before 6. we went to the side of the south stand just to give ourselves a bit of room with COVID and the like! But about 10 minutes before throw in we had to move as they let too many people into the stand and these people had no where to go so the had to stand down the isles and at the back . People were getting very angry and They eventually opened the area behind the goals we eventually had to stand behind the goals but missed the first 17 minutes of the match. Why on earth don't they just open up the the upper Deck and give people a bit of comfort instead of cramming in too many! It's a lovely stadium but how could 13000 in a 45000 stadium cause this much danger and hassle?

Health & Safety issue, should be reported. The interview afterwards on the pitch with Jackie & Davy was a farce, young lads everywhere, not enough stewarding. No surprise, usual excuses to follow.
