POLL: Is the All-Ireland final diluted by being on a Saturday?

The GAA have come under some criticism for their scheduling of the Cork-Clare clash for tomorrow evening.

AFTER THE FIRST game between Cork and Clare ended in a draw, it was decided that the replay would take place tomorrow.

Having the game on a Saturday evening was deemed somewhat controversial, with many fans complaining that scheduling the match at this time was far from convenient for their travel arrangements among other issues.

However, the GAA argue that they were left with no option but to play the game on the Saturday, with other fixtures having already been arranged for Sunday in Croke Park.

With all that in mind, do you think the All-Ireland final is diluted by being on a Saturday?
