That's probably just my rubbish photography. Looked like the right dimensions to the naked eye, just small in goal areas.

Back to Croke Park for International Rules

Security was rubbish, given the heightened state of alert in Europe. A group of blokes brought in:
A wicker basket,
A mop,
A toilet seat,
An inflatable Santa,
A doll's pram,
A large picture of Jesus which lit up,
And a BBQ.

And one from earlier, St James' Park for Scotland v Samoa during the RWC
I do like the panorama feature on the iPhone 6s. Much smoother than trying to stitch 3 photos together.

Meadowbank, main stadium of the 1970 & 1986 Commonwealth Games. And home of Scottish League 2 side Edinburgh City following promotion from the Lowland League.
A bit like a crap version of the departed Olympic Park in Melbourne.

Bottom 2 photos taken at around 9:30pm

The stand

Full view of the stand from where the goal is at the city end

Ok, I was there with the missus for Sir Elton John. She drove, I drank.
