For the first time in over three decades an All-Ireland semi-final will be held outside Croke Park and GAA fans are not happy.

Not since the replay between Dublin and Cork in 1983 has an All-Ireland semi-final been played away from Croke Park.

What's your opinion?

Should the GAA have deferred the Mayo-Kerry replay by a week so it could be held at Croke Park?

  • Yes 84%
  • No 16%

Kerry and Mayo must go to battle again this Saturday at the Gaelic Grounds after the GAA ignored pleas from the Mayo County Board to have the game postponed for a week so it wouldn't clash with the NFl game at Croker next weekend.

The Gaelic Grounds has a capacity of 45,000 but with over 52,000 fans at yesterday's draw and demand for the replay expected to be even higher, a lot of fans will be left disappointed.

Here is some of the reaction from fans on twitter:
