There was an interesting line about Dublin's mindset and preparations in a post-All-Ireland final piece by Denis Walsh in The Sunday Times. It revealed details of "the Bunker", a meeting room built with dressing rooms and a kitchen at DCU. "It’s a little building that you wouldn’t even see. There’s a bit more technology in there now but the walls were never painted. We ate there every night. It was about togetherness, developing a group mentality", Niall Moyna told Denis Walsh.
While the Dubs may meet in spartan surroundings, those playing their club football with Judes do anything but.
They've recently funded and built a new room designed for video analysis and presentations, and it's very slick indeed.

A room that once looked like this...
...now looks like this.
