Nine-time All Star Kate Kelly calls for All-Ireland camogie finals to be moved to Croke Park

Nine-time All Star and four-time All-Ireland winner Kate Kelly has called for the All-Ireland senior and intermediate club championship finals to be moved to Croke Park after the Camogie Association revealed on Tuesday that the deciders will now take place on Saturday 24 March in St. Tiernach’s Park, Clones, Co. Monaghan.

The original fixtures were supposed to be played in Croke Park but were rescheduled for Sunday, March 18, due to Storm Emma.

Both games were cancelled last weekend, along with a host of national league fixtures, due to the heavy snowfall.

No matches are currently set for Croke Park this Saturday while Dublin will play Tipperary in the Allianz National Hurling League Division 1 quarter-final on Sunday, before the football team take on Monaghan in the second part of a double header at headquarters.

Kelly tweeted that the game should be moved back to Croke Park and called on the Camogie Association, Croke Park and the GAA to revisit the matter.

"Its the Dream for All players to play in Croke Park, especially the club players!!," tweeted Kelly.

"Apart from the disappointment that these games have been postponed twice, I think this fixture should be revisited & played in Croke Park!"

Kelly was not the only person voicing her frustration at the move to Clones with many Twitter users calling on the relative parties to relocate the finals.
