Dublin move away from Croker for quarter final

Dublin

Dublin's footballers will play their first Championship match away from Croke Park in a decade.

The Leinster Council confirmed that Nowlan Park in Kilkenny will host the All Ireland champions' provincial quarter final meeting with either Laois or Wicklow .

The last time the Dubs played a championship game away from H-Q, they narrowly beat Longford in 2006 at Pearse Park.

There's been a mainly positive reaction however Laois aren't happy as they wanted to host the game if they beat Wicklow.
