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

Post by Sin é on Mon 08 Aug 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.

Does the IRFU share a lot of ideals with DUP? I know some Irish fans on here are heavily in favour of them, but is it a widespread support?

The IRFU are more interested in inclusion so no the IRFU and the DUP have very little in common, though there have been a couple of DUP sympathisers playing for Ireland over the years. Davy Tweed for example:

Id imagine most rugby fans are as embarrassed by the DUP as they are by Sinn Fein. Its fairly deplorable that the Tories would jump into bed with them but not at all surprising. Not sure who the Ireland fans in favour of the DUP are but each to their own.

Corbyn has been in bed with Sinn Fein for years by choice, Tories being forced to compromise with the DUP is not the same thing.

I love people waking up to Irish politics and really not having a clue Rolling Eyes

The Tories would sell their grannies for power. No shame.

On the contrary I would it's Corbyn who has been the main politician hungry for power, irrespective of the destruction his actions will cause. You could see how highly he sees himself after being praised by some of his supporters at Glastonbury. Bribing the young with promises he'd struggle to keep if actually elected.

Corbyn has allowed Brexit to happen in his bid for power, he doesn't seem to be embarrassed by that. He has been one of the key architects of Brexit, he is pro-Brexit and many of his pro-EU supporters don't seem to have realised it.

Whilst I think May has been a weak figure, she did take up the thankless poisoned chalice of trying to negotiate Brexit (something she didn't vote for).

In a horrible situation where we have a PM who didn't vote Brexit being propped up by the DUP having to negotiate with the EU who won't give the UK a good deal.
