    Don't think it stands a chance - Ireland has one, possibly two stadiums that meet criteria. One of which would be very hard to secure for football.

    Wales has two or three.

    Scotland has three.

    So, being optimistic, they'd still have to build at least two stadiums. Is there demand in any of the nations?

    Northern Ireland won't be part of the bid, and has no stadiums anyway.

    Huge problem would surely be gifting 3 teams, as hosts, qualification- 2 of which haven't qualified for a fair while and haven't come close in recent years?

    Other than that I'd wish them all the best.

    Given that its changing to a 24 team tournament after this one I don't think three hosts would prove an issue.

    I wasn't aware of that. In such a case you're right it wouldn't be a big issue.

    Some LARGE stadiums on offer:

    Aviva
    Croke (permission permitted)
    Millenium
    Celtic park
    Hampden
    Ibrox
    Murrayfield

    Ireland could possibly use a reasonably large GAA stadium like Limerick if they get permission and upgrade it. Or Munster's new ground. You have to spread the stadiums geographically!

    Don't forget the new Aberdeen stadium that's going to be built. The idea for that one is to have a stadium bigger than Hampden, as far as I'm aware.
