I overheard two lads talking about the Aviva, saying architects plans are there to put more tiers at the north end (old Havelock). Is it true that it could be made into a proper bowl with an extra smaller tier and corporate boxes etc? They said the IRFU and FAI had been buying houses behind the north end (and were now renting them out) and when they had enough they would apply for planning permission to finish it off properly????

No need for the extra capacity 50k is fine. The only time there is demand is when we play the like of Germany or if we're in a playoff. There won't be a sell out in the next campaign for instance. Wales might come close but won't sell out IMO

The rugby could easily get another few thousand more than we would easily

True but it's souless enough as it is when were playing the likes Gibraltar and Faroes and there's only 25k there. Would be even worse with only 20/25k in a 60k seater.

Makes sense in the long term. Due to planning problems in regards to houses behind the North of the site, the North Stand could only be built to the level it is now.

Yes but now that the recession is over if you look back at Croke Park Euro 2008 home qualifiers attendances

72,000 v Wales
71,000 v Slovakia
67,000 v Germany
and finally for a meaningless match
54,000 v Cyprus

I value everyone's opinion but just want to know is it actually feasible???

We only build 3/4 stadiums in this country. Imagine Croke park as a bowl . As it is it looks sh*te . aviva isn't much better..
To be honest though we need a smaller stadium with perhaps 25k with a sliding roof for friendly matches , smaller games other sports concerts etc.

For the Rugby I would say probably. For the football no when you condiser they'd probably only have one game at most that would potentially get 50k+ in a campaign (Providing they get a Germany,Spain,Italy etc.. and not a Greece) or unless we're in with a chance with automatic qualification in the final home game or we were to draw the Poles again and be outnumbered at home again

I love LR despite the north tier. One of my favourite stadiums. I also like Citro├źn C3 Picassos though so I might have strange tastes. The fact that it isn't 'normal' appeals to me.

I agree with a smaller second stadium and would suggest properly renovating the likes of Dayler, Tallagh or something in Cork, the West or one of the meath towns.

Ireland need a 35,000 capacity stadium for all but the big games. Bring back Eircom Park!  Dalymount rebuilt into a 35,000 would be class
So you've decided to read this eh?

10k I think idea is for it to be ready by Euro 2020 so it can be used for teams training

Really. They build a state of the art stadium and people are still giving out. Cry babies.
Regarding CRoke park the hill is a wonderful idea even if it doesn't look good. The atmosphere it creates is great and most people want a standing terrace but when there is one somewhere else depechemode you'll complain
