Would be a serious amount of travelling if you're coming from outside Dublin. You'd have to be pretty dedicated and I'd say the novelty would wear off quick.

There arenít separate packages for football and hurling which is unfortunate, I was able to get a friend to take the hurling / camogie tickets paying half the cost of two seats.
Works very well for us, if we arenít using tickets for a game I put them on the ticket exchange, if they sell we get 50% of the sale price.
The seats arenít cheap, but itís a great day out on match day.

Jeez, they're taking some commission for selling them on as well ... 50%!

have a couple but with the tighter schedule over the next few years they aren`t as attractive with the travel etc and games on saturday/ sundays rather than spread out.
will be interesting to see what league games they put in croke this year with no dubs in Div 1

can see double headers with some of the division one games
sau tyrone/kerry, or armagh /galway etc
but as i said with the shorter season the tickets arent as attractive for the price as you can pick up tickets for any games outside the finals very easily for half the premium price

Why would any County give up home advantage and ground rent to facilitate Dublin playing in their home ground?
Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

Would they not get more revenue if its played as part of a double header night?
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Not unless they demanded a figure for giving up home advantage and their ground rental 10%.

No way Tyrone would give up a home game to placate a double header with the Division 2 galacticos.

So after Garth Brooks vacates the venue, Croke Park will be a seagull sanctuary until the business end of the championship rolls around again Ö youíd think premium ticket packages will have to be rethought in the new context of the split season.
