Kids on pitch after final whistle

    Could anyone tell me which pitches in Munster allow kids on after the final whistle in Munster Championship matches?

    I know at Semple Stadium kids are allowed on and can puck around at full time. I don't believe this is allowed now at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

    Anyone know of this is allowed in Limerick and Ennis?

    Definately allowed in Limerick anway, as the pitch is usually swamped with kids after the final whistle. Both stands don't have a fence between them and pitchside, which make it easy. Sometimes if there's a big game the following week they may appeal to 'patrons' to stay off the pitch. This usually falls on deaf years anyway.😊ðŸ˜႒

    Allowed in Ennis too. It's one of the great things about a gaa match imo.
    Was disappointing they wouldn't let kids on the field in PUC, but considering the current state of the place, not as surprising as it was on the day. Lol

    Depends on the game, the time of year and schedule of upcoming matches, this time of year not a hope will you be let on the pitch cause of the powers that be thinking that a few kids will do more damage than 30 grown men.

    Whatever about full time, on a recent trip to Semple Stadium, kids were told/asked to stay off the pitch at half time. None dissented. Pitch was in poor shape in fairness.

    This was during a football game mind you.
