Protest planned for SFC final day

Residents who live near Croke Park are to stage a protest on the main Dublin to Cork Road on All-Ireland SFC final day.

It is the latest move by residents who are angry with the GAA's plans to press ahead with the €9 million redevelopment of the handball and community centre beside Croke Park.

"We are not out to inconvenience the ordinary decent GAA person travelling to the game which is why we are letting people know in advance but we have been left with no other option," said Croke Park Streets Committee chairman Eamon O'Brien.

"You might ask why we are concentrating on the Cork road and not the Down (M1) one. Well, the president of the GAA is from Cork and he has consistently ignored us. That is why."
