would Fraher Field not be waterford’s county ground?


#563

No it’s a shit hole


#564

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. :pint:

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.


#567

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.


#568

H&S has destroyed the supposed capacity of any number of GAA venues, wikipedia is talking through its hole.


#569

I presume the fireman would be due an auld visit to Walsh Park alright.
