Dublin have not played a Championship game outside of Croke Park for ten years, but this summer the GAA plan on hosting the Leinster Championship Quarter-Final between Dublin and either Laois or Wicklow at Nowlan Park in Kilkenny.
The selection of Nowlan Park has caused some controversy, with former Laois footballer Colm Parkinson questioning why a county with no culture of promoting Gaelic football gets the opportunity to host the game.
Laois footballer Darren Strong has also criticised the decision, saying that should Laois overcome Wicklow, he would rather fact Dublin in Croke Park:
Obviously we have to get over the first match but you have to take a stand. Imagine getting Dublin down to O'Moore Park? You'd fill the place. If it's in Kilkenny, I'd rather play in Croke Park.
Everyone's shouting to get Dublin out of Croke Park but where's the advantage for Laois or Wicklow in Kilkenny?
Imagine Wicklow getting them to Aughrim? The crowd alone would be worth something. If the match was in Croke Park, you'd get more Laois supporters there than in Kilkenny.
