would Fraher Field not be waterford’s county ground?
No it’s a shit hole
im aware its a shithole
I was surprised to see that Great Internet Bible of Fact, Wikipedia, has Walsh Park down with a capacity of 17,000. Is that an actual official capacity, a finger in the air guesstimate, or some class of record attendance from the 60s?
I presume the alternatives to Walsh Park are going to Nowlan or Thurles. I’d say 20k is the benchmark; what harm if a few games sell out, it only drives the allure of the whole thing. Eagerly anticipating this revamped championship next year, two guaranteed home and away games, unrale.
17,000 crowd the last time we played a Munster championship game there in 1996. I think the capacity is the same now, maybe more since we replaced the grass on the banks with gravel.
Christ, we got to a final the year before and I was still pessimistic. Think Hayes had his nephew playing that day. We had a centre forward from Thomas’, was it John Conroy? Not one of our better experiments.
H&S has destroyed the supposed capacity of any number of GAA venues, wikipedia is talking through its hole.
I presume the fireman would be due an auld visit to Walsh Park alright.
Clare v Cork final. Puke hurling is dead (again).

Yes. Yes. Yes we can. Most likely.
Not until round 2.
