DUBS STAYING IN CROKER AS DOUBLE-HEADER IS CONFIRMED.
Dublin will continue to play all of their Leinster SFC matches in Croke Park.
At last night’s Leinster Council meeting, it was decided not to move Jim Gavin’s men out of GAA headquarters for next year’s Leinster quarter-final against Offaly or Longford.
There had been some speculation that the Dubs would be asked to play a provincial championship game outside Croker for the first time since 2006, but instead it was decided that the quarter-final be staged as part of a double-header with the hurlers’ Leinster quarter-final against Galway on Sunday, May 31.
The hurlers, under new manager Ger Cunningham, will face the Tribesmen in the curtain-raiser at 2pm, with the footballers opening the defence of the Delaney Cup against the winners of Offaly and Longford at 4pm.(Hoganstand)
