GAA president Larry McCarthy described what Kerry have done as “the gold standard” for other counties to follow.
“It’s a magnificent facility, absolutely fabulous,” he said today. “The design and the touches that are here are absolutely brilliant and certainly it could be [followed] by other counties.
“There’s a huge investment by the Kerry diaspora and the Kerry people here as well so that’s obviously a challenge for a lot of counties.”
