    Should it transpire and Ireland qualify on merit, one ideal group would be with Brazil, Mexico and Japan.
    Brazilians and Mexicans in carnival mode day and night, we join in of course and the Japanese tidy up afterwards.

    Optimist!
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    12 games in Ireland, would the two Dublin stadiums support that? Or would they have to look elsewhere? You'd presume Pairc Ui Chaoimh, with seats put in, would be first on the list because of its urban setting and transport links (over, say, FitzGerald Park). All a bit pie in the sky all the same.

    Pairc Uí Chaoimh would be too small without redevelopment. Needs to be 40,000 all seater at a minimum and its only 45,000 with the terraces.

    Would have to be the two Dublin stadiums only I'd guess. They're far enough apart and well connected for it to be OK I think.

    I can see it being upgraded to an all-seater, and when the World Cup is over, the GAA closes it for "foreign sports" again. So the GAA would get a free upgrade paid by football money, and then it can't be used for football afterwards.

    The GAA can f*ck off.

    The World Cup bid can f*ck off.

    Sort out football in Ireland before throwing silly money at a vanity project that will have no positive effects on the game here.
