The Daily Poll

Poll: Should Croke Park spectators be allowed to bring alcohol to their seats?

Rugby fans used to the Aviva will have to adjust to the northside venue’s different rules this weekend.

RUGBY IS VISITING Dublin’s northside this weekend.

Leinster face Northampton in Croke Park while redevelopment works take place at the Aviva, their usual home stadium.

But in the Aviva, fans can purchase alcohol and bring it to their seat, to drink while watching the match. In Croke Park, alcohol can only be consumed at the stadium bar, no matter which sport is being played, be it rugby, GAA, or tiddlywinks.

This has led to a slew of hot takes in recent days.

So today we’re asking: Should spectators be allowed to bring alcohol to their seats in Croke Park?

Poll Results:

No (8605)
Yes (4626)
Undecided (428)
