Looks like the GAA might be in danger of losing €60million, because of the failure to build a national stadium for the proposed joint Irish-Scottish bid for the soccer European Championship:

“..the GAA’s chances of still getting the money have not been helped by the association’s outright rejection of the Taoiseach’s request that Croke Park be made available for the Euro 2008 football championships.”

From a Scottish perspective:

“The SNP endlessly touts Ireland as a model of an independent state on the fringes of Europe, close to Scotland in traditions and culture, but if the Celtic Tiger cannot produce two modern stadiums to UEFA requirements, the Scottish nationalists will have to take refuge in silence.
