Donegal object to facing Dublin in Croke Park


Donegal are seeking clarification from the GAA regarding the choice of Croke Park as the venue for their Super 8 meeting with Dublin.

Every county that qualifies for the last eight of the All-Ireland SFC is guaranteed to play one game in Croke Park, one at home and an away game but Dublin are due to play at headquarters twice as the stadium is considered to be their home ground.

Although all first round games will be played at Croke Park on the weekend of July 14-15, Donegal are unhappy at the prospect of meeting Dublin at the Jones's Road venue when it is supposed to be a neutral stadium.

"Following the announcement today by the CCCC regarding venues for the All-Ireland Quarter-Final Group stage (Super 8's) games," a statement from Donegal read.

"C.L.G. Dhún na nGall are to seek a meeting with GAA Officials to seek clarification on how any County may use a Ground as both Neutral and a Home venue.

"The intention of the meeting is to ensure a level playing field for every team who will qualify for the All-Ireland Quarter-Final Group Stage and ensure that no team has any advantage over any other team."

Donegal's objection comes just a week after Kildare successfully campaigned to have their qualifier switched from Croke Park to St Conleth's Park.
