Stuart Wilson, the Pitch Manager at Croke Park, has shared images of the beautiful greensward at GAA headquarters.

The pitch at the Jones Road venue is in perfect condition judging by the pictures Stuart Wilson shared today.

“Ah stop it. Why are you taunting us,” was the response of Wicklow comedian and television presenter Dara Ó Briain on twitter. 

We all feel your pain Dara!
