4. Newbridge/ #NewbridgeorNothing

Round three of the All-Ireland football qualifier between Kildare and Mayo was scheduled to take place at Croke Park on Saturday. Kildare football manager, Cian O’Neill, refused to play at Croke Park and stood firm in his stance to play the game at Newbridge. The game was moved to Newbridge and football fans took their thoughts on the controversy to Twitter.
Know Cian O Neill for years. An utter gentleman no other way to describe him. He and Kildare are 100% right to stand their ground here. There was no issue a few weeks back when Ennis was sold out and there was no crowd disruption outside the ground. #Newbridgeornothing

If Mayo had of been drawn out first, would they have been given an option or told where to play? Kildare are right to stick to their guns and not be treated like second class in this matter #Newbridgeornothing #tonighttv3
