Ireland's bid for 2023 World Cup - venues announced + Gov. underwriting 320m

Post by Sin é on Mon Aug 08, 2016 9:54 pm

First topic message reminder :

Venues announced and both Govs underwriting cost.


http://www.irishexaminer.com/ireland/government-to-underwrite-320m-in-bid-for-2023-rugby-world-cup-414609.html


Croke Park, The Aviva stadium, RDS in Dublin; (3)
Casement Park and Kingspan Stadium in Belfast (2)
Pairc Uí Chaoimh in Cork;

These include Croke Park, the Aviva Stadium and the RDS in Dublin;
Casement Park and Kingspan Stadium in Belfast;
Pairc Uí Chaoimh in Cork;
Thomond Park, Limerick;
Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney;
Pearse Stadium, Galway;
McHale Park in Castlebar;
Nowlan Park, Kilkenny;
and Celtic Park in Derry.

Great to see how evenly spread around the island (Derry & Kilkenny for example).

The operational costs for redeveloping some of these venues and bringing them up to standards and sizes for the tournament is estimated to cost in the region of €60m.

I think we have a good chance.

Fine take issue with that but that has nothing to do with me passing comment on a place I have never been to

How many times have you been to South Africa?

That different - that is an comment based on observable facts, albeit by others.

To dismiss somewhere regarding its ability to be successful at something, without knowing the place is very different

On boards like this its called trolling

A couple of times, going again next January.
My cousin lives in Cape Town and I have a friend in Natal.

Lived 6 months in Australia - never been to New Zealand

Has everything to do with you comment - by you own admission it is a comment based upon ignorance

That's pretty obvious though. Are you saying that it is obvious Ireland isnt a good place for a RWC?

I would love for Ireland to host it, and of all the countries to visit to watch it Ireland would be one of the first I'd pick...though Wales probably another. thumbsup

I think "my preference if there is a choice would be to see it return to SA" probably means it not being hosted in Ireland or France.

Owain Glyndŵr reasoning is probably to do with the Irish or frenchbids not including Cardiff as a venue. Which makes either more attractive to everyone else.

I assume your moniker has something to do with being ignorant of rugby since most people who have ever been to the Principality agree it is, by far one of the best rugby venues in the world.

Hopefully the games will go to Ireland, they havent hosted it before and they are a much safer environment than South Africa.

I would have thought Laurie's post was factually spot on in this occasion. At this stage I think Ireland would have to be the favourites to be given the 2023 RWC in Nov of this year.

 Its not often you get to write that GG.

 Now with the Commonwealth games issues and taking the 2024 Games away from Natal. South African rugby doesnt need let alone deserve being made into a vehicle for the ANC. World rugby needs South Africa, and South Africa needs World Rugby, for a WRC to go to SA in the current political climate the damage could be massive to south African Rugby.

....or chances of being blown up in Ireland v SA.

I spent 3 weeks traveling round SA for the 2009 Lions independently and another 2 weeks traveling around SA and Namibia. Not once did I feel unsafe, as long as you use your noodle and the people were charming.

And there's never any violence in Dublin or any other part of Ireland right.

It's the Dutch definition of a Welsh rugby player. Better than having a moniker that sounds like an English public schoolboy who is mildly happy. Given it's meaningless in Welsh as you don't have a country

Oh that's superb.

Do you have tulips at half time or oranges?

Does the physio give you a spliff?

 Do not mock, Dutch Rugby is very strong when you take South Africa into account.

Meaning what; the 17th Century diaspora of the Boers has some connection with Dutch rugby today?

Gwlad - all of your posts are simply intended to troll this particular topic.

Your singular view/opinion is very clear as you've stated it a number of times. All you're doing now is trying to start arguments. You know that's what you're doing - give it up, it's tedious.

I have? what is it?

Most people have singular views/opinions. Just wanted to know why someone made the connection between the Dutch and modern South African rugby which I can only imagine the author believes is due to the Boer diaspora from Europe and seems just a tad tenuous since the Boers were French, German and Dutch Calvinists.
