The decision to allow Jamie Carragher and his soccer school desecrate their pitch last summer landed Dromard in trouble with the GAA hierarchy.
But former Munster Council Chairman Noel Walsh believes that Dromard should be rewarded for their initiative. Indeed, far from being fined, they should be rewarded with more money.
Walsh is tabling a motion before Congress arguing that county grounds should be made available to other sports - he acknowledges that such a motion wouldn't cover the Dromard example.
Talking to the Daily Star, he cites an interesting case up north.
Derry City will be without a home for the final three months of the 2016 season as the Brandywell is to be redeveloped by the City Council (it is they who own the ground rather than the club).
However, Walsh has suggested that Derry GAA could step up and make Celtic Park available to their homeless brethren.
Our motion, in fairness, doesn’t relate to club grounds, just county grounds and in a lot of cases counties may never have the need to take up the option. But there’s one obvious situation I see at the moment where the use of a GAA county ground could help another sport, in Derry.
I believe Derry City are doing some work on their ground and while that work is taking place, wouldn’t it help them to play their games at Celtic Park GAA ground, which is nearby.
It is still probable that the club will play their home games at the neighbouring Riverside Stadium, the ground of IFA League club Institute.
