    No as it would undo all the good work done in Dublin football the past decade. A full championship restructure and proper investment in other counties is what is needed imo.

    Already happened.
    We now have Dublin in Ireland and North American Dublin.

    Yes.

    By all means split us up.

    Then it will be Dublin A vs Dublin B in every single All Ireland final until the end of time.

    The planet will be spared all the 'Mayo God help us' beal bochting, when they lose yet another final. We'll also be spared all the Kerry whinging that their human rights have been breached by their not being handed the Sam Maguire cup at the start of every year.

    It's a win win for all concerned really. Dunno why no one thought of it sooner.

    Where do I go to sign a petition to make this happen?

    Well then we'd just have to split both of them in half and keep doing so until there's an all Ireland final without a Dublin team in it.

    Should Kerry be split too?

    Kilkenny won 8 out of 10 All Irelands, some of them were over as contests after 15 minutes, and nobody talked about a split.

    Dublin win a few All Irelands by small margins and the sore losers come up with this nonsense.
    It's pathetic, not one ounce of it is motivated by the love of the game or the best interests of the sport.

    Any county which proposes it should be thrown out of the All Ireland.

    This ****e again!

    Dublin having a good run as did Kilkenny, Kerry....etc in the past. Why the sudden call for a split?

    Dublin haven’t always dominated so remember this. The population advantage has always been there. Dubs Leinster rivals Meath Kildare Laois Westmeath have all gone backwards in recent years at the same time Dubs hve progressed

    Here don't be lumping that langer in with us. He's a Cork man and they can keep him..

    Splitting Dublin is absolute nonsense and this thread was created to just stir things up, the OP states he doesn't want Dublin split so why even bring it up.

    So it's the population that gives the advantage? So the Dublin hurlers are top dogs every year, yeah?

    Is he really?

    I always had him pegged as a long grass dweller. The more you know...

    Patww is doing us service. Another thread was about to get derailed earlier with Dublin split nonsense so it was suggest a dedicated split cesspool be made to take the swill.

    ---

    Shocked at how one-sided it is against the split tbh.

    Stoner and Slattsy the 2 obvious traitors to the cause. Heffo is turning in his grave.

    Yeah well some people don't seem to realise there are other sports played here, sure in Southside Dublin rugby is the national sport! Seven of the Leinster starting fifteen were born in Dublin.

    The last Kerryman to represent Republic of Ireland was back in the 1960s. Sean Maguire became the first Kilkenny man since the 1930s to don the green jersey!

    Of course they shouldn’t. But every county should be treated the same. That means that when Donegal/Mayo/Kerry/Tyrone play Dublin in the Championship they should have the same change of home advantage as Dublin have.

    I couldn’t give a s**t about capacity. Some people can’t see it, is that worse than the removal of equity?

    Some people don't seem to realise there is a million and a half people in Dublin and growing to 2 million and loads of jobs and in other places a fraction of the jobs, population and infrastructure to play said sports on a wide scale

    The population of Dublin is not even one third of the total population of the Republic of Ireland. So when you say a fraction, you're actually talking about the majority of the jobs, population and infrastructure of the country.

    At the moment, no.

    If at some point in the future someone produces a really well constructed study that shows beyond all reasonable doubt that Dublin being dominant in football is harming the game and that splitting the county will improve things for everyone then break out the cleavers.


    With that said, I am considering running in the next general election with my sole piece of policy being a campaign to make the "so and so should be split in two" joke into a hangable offence. Or maybe death by log splitter, that's probably more appropriate. Either way, it's something that stopped being funny years ago, not that it was very funny to begin with.

    Yawn thou shall not even hint at criticising the Almighty Juggernaut

    Yawn we have absolutely no advantages over anybody else and if you even hint at an advantage you will be silenced Kim Jong Un style

    Yawn how about we introduce a B championship so they won't get slaughtered by the Juggernaut and end up losing their best players to commiting to IC because of demoralizing humiliations in the Coliseum

    Yawn from a weaker county but instead opt to support and worship the Big Beast instead and glory in their bought success

    Yawn how about we merge weaker counties and to hell with their identities but silence if you dare split up our conglomerate behemoth

    When Kerry and Meath had decent teams the population of Dublin didn't seem to be much of an advantage.

    1995 to 2011 what happend, Dubs couldn't even make the final, never mind win it..

    Population all fecked off out on the lash?
