Everyone has a favourite GAA ground … and one they can’t abide. It’s a subjective choice, of course, but that’s not to say there aren’t perfectly rational reasons for their profanity-laden objections to the venues that don’t just cut the mustard.

The view is cat” … “The seats are a pain in the a**e” (figuratively speaking) … “The jacks haven’t seen a janitor in 20 years” … “The pitch turns into a bog at the first sprinkle of precipitation” … “And the traffic? Oh, don’t mention the war” … a theatre of dreams will quickly lose its lustre if you miss the first half.
