While I'm sure there are people who go to inter county games like this and then head straight home, surely the GAA appreciate that others enjoy the more social aspects of matches esp when your making the trip as an away supporter. Its hardly asking too much to put a D1 League game on somewhere that might have a few pubs/restaurants within walking distance so people can have a drink or get some food before or after the match. Given the past two years we've endured you would think the powers that be might understand the importance of this aspect of a sporting event!!
I agree with a few others on here, next time Monaghan are coming down we should repay the compliment. I could ask if Mountcoal was free
Its a lovely neck of the woods and they are very proud of Paddy Kavanagh with signposts for this and that aspect of his life along the stretch of road from the village to the pitch.
I think you will like the place.
Ah sure I knew it was that man's stony grey soil alright Mick, I believe he once cost the club a game while minding the goal. Except his idea of minding the goal was when the play was up the other end to go walking over to the sideline to buy a lemonade off some fella selling them to the crowd and have a smoke while enjoying it. Which sounded like a pleasant enough break from proceedings until the play suddenly transferred to his end and the opposition ran in a goal to the empty net.
