No big screen event for Castle­bar

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Gaelic Games -

A de­ci­sion to shelve plans to show the All-Ire­land SFC on a big screen at a pub­lic venue in Castle­bar, sim­i­lar to that in­stalled in Gal­way’s Eyre Square for the hurl­ing fi­nal, has prompted a fu­ri­ous so­cial me­dia re­ac­tion. “Lo­gis­tics and time are against us with our pro­posal to screen the All-Ire­land fi­nal on a big screen at the Mall, so we’re call­ing it off,” a spokesman for the lo­cal traders group told the Con­naught Tele­graph.

It is un­der­stood the main dif­fi­cul­ties related to stew­ard­ing, se­cu­rity and in­sur­ance. “The busi­ness peo­ple of Castle­bar, the county board, the county council, hang your heads in shame,” was one of many even-handed Face­book com­mentsstory.
