I only deleted the accounts there a few weeks ago.  I was in the Premium level yesterday at the annihilation of Cork by the greatest hurling team of all time and just listening to people there were a lot of them discussing the price increase and I can say for certain that the GAA have a job on their hands.  Not one person in a group of six people that I was having a pint with were remewing theirs and they were very certain about that.  One of these had ten seats and the rest had two or three each.  The Canal end was near empty yesterday as well.

If they had any sense they'd be keeping the prices the same in the hope that people will renew rather than increasing them. What planet are they living on ? The country is on its hole and they're looking for more money ??

Precient comments from McKenna in 2008:

"The Hogan Stand side comes up for renewal in 2010 and since it's the most popular part of the stadium, I would be confident of a big interest. Our prices offer great value -- in fact we could probably double the cost of premium tickets and still be over-subscribed," he said."

In fairness the whole economic landscape of the country changed profoundly between 2008 and 2010, demand for many products and services has dropped greatly.

The price of the premium ticket has went up 63% in the last 10 years?

as a matter of interest...anyone recall the price of an ordinary all ireland final ticket in 2000? I'd guess the difference from a 2000 to 2010 would be even greater.

Ive been going to a specific level premium seat for about 80-90% of the matches played in croke park (including football and rugby) for about 5 years.  Its a pretty good seat between the 60 metre line and half way on the Canal side.  In that time which would be more than 50 games I can't ever remember the same people within 10 of me in any direction and I have a good head for faces.  It always without fail seems to be different people.  Always made me wonder who exactly buys premier tickets that you never see the same people twice.

How many of the builders had corporate boxes?

A lot of companies would have a few premium level seats that they would share around between their customers/prospective clients, etc. Might explain it...

Just rooted out the stub of my ticket from the 2000 All-ireland Final and a seat in section 703 cost IR£32.

IR32 is approx. EUR40. This years AI is EUR70 i presume... which is an increase of 75%....
maybe the premium holders are doing alright only getting a 63% increase in 10 years!!!!

Don't think an Upper Tier ticket would be €70 - Lower yes but Upper more like €55?
come disagree with me on http://gushtystuppencehapenny.wordpress.com/ and spread the word

Think only place where tickets are cheaper is in the Hill/Nally stand area, all others are same price.

Yeah but they must be fairly large companies that you never see the same person twice.
