Yesterday.

Outside Croke Park ahead and after the GAA football matches involving Carlow, Laois, Longford and Dublin.

All photos by Matthew Spalding and David Quinn (a different one).

We’ve started a new facebook page called The People of Croke Park and we plan to photograph the fans on their way into the stadium for every match this summer – from now until the All Ireland.

It’s a riot of colour and excitement and the good weather yesterday really added to the atmosphere.

Fans from Carlow, Laois, Longford and Dublin were all out in their full colours.

        I don’t know the answer to that Liam, I haven’t lived in Dublin in many years. Funnily enough since you say it they kind of look like they’d make a dreadful noise.
