The massive flag with the Dub colours that's passed around Hill 16 is to be banned. It's after Dublin Fire Brigade said it could pose a fire or security risk.
Inner City Councillor Christy Burke has told 98FM News he's contacted GAA chiefs on behalf of supporters but they are sticking to their decision. Community Liaison Officer, Julianna Savage, wrote:
"Dublin Fire Brigade advised that large flags should not be allowed into the stadium as they are flammable items which pose a fire risk and as the health and safety of all match goers is our number one priority during any event, large flags are not permitted in the stadium.
I also understand the stadium has received a number of complaints when these large flags have been used by supporters who do not like when flags go over their heads during matches restricting their view etc. and their feedback also has to be taken into consideration by the stadium."
Supporters insist the flag is safe and that it is not flammable. Councillor Burke is working to see if a compromise can be reached to halve the size of the flag.
Richie Larkin, who helped set up the All Dubs Facebook page, said "they are stopping us from bringing colour, atmosphere and entertainment into the stadium".
"They are actually killing off our enjoyment of going to match days and going to support the team that we love to support", he told 98FM News
The All Dubs group clubbed together and got the flag made about four months ago, after they felt the sea of navy and blue colour had drained from the Hill.
