    Great view once you are near the front.

    The back of the stand is to far away

    Top tier, near front row and just behind the goals is a cracking spot in my view, especially for the hurling. Watched the 2009 and 2010 finals from there, PJ Ryan save from Callinan in '09 and then the Lar Corbett hattrick in 2010, Michael Kavanagh throwing the hurl at him in a last ditch effort to stop one of the goals.... fantastic stuff.

    Michael Kavanagh didn't play in 2010, John Dalton played instead, along with Brian hogan and Henry shefflin massive losses for kilkenny, John tennyson throw the hurl, maybe your view wasn't so good 🤣

    Top tier in the lower half of that tier is excellent.

    My memory more like it :-)

    Not from Kilkenny, so knowing every single player and who is who on the team isnt really a huge priority for me.....

    Notwithstanding that - the point stands that it was a fairly epic moment in an All Ireland final, and the front of the upper tier was a great vantage point.

    I was at the back of the upper tier in the Davin once at a hurling match. Great view of the planes going in and out of Dublin Airport, could hardly see the ball in the match, looked like the players were chasing an imaginary one.
