The GAA’s Leinster Council have agreed to switch Dublin’s Leinster Senior Hurling Championship quarter-final match with Offaly to Croke Park.
Dublin requested the move from the 10,000-capacity Parnell Park after 42,300 fans paid in to see them defeat Kilkenny inthe League Final at Croke Park last Sunday. The game will now go ahead on Sunday, May 29 at 2pm.
It has not yet been decided if there will be a double header, with the other quarter-final featuring Wexford and the winners of the first round tie between Antrim and Laois.
GAA president Christy Cooney has welcomed the new interest in Dublin hurling:
“It’s tremendous for the hurling championship, it’s given the Leinster championship a massive boost”.
