Dublin's permanent residency in Croke Park has been labelled as "unfair" by Fermanagh footballer Declan McCusker.

"It is a big change for us to be playing in Croke Park whereas they (Dublin) are playing in it every Championship game, which is something I don't agree with," he said. "It's the only pitch in the country that has Hawk-Eye whereas none of the other pitches have it. That means every other team can get a bad call but Dublin never get a bad call against them, because they always have Hawk-Eye to back them up.

"I do think it's unfair."

Dublin's last Championship match outside of headquarters was in 2006 against Longford in a Leinster Championship quarter-final in Pearse Park, scraping a 1-12 to 0-13 win.
