- Kerry have a 100% record in winning the All-Ireland the year after Tyrone win the All-Ireland
- Jack O'Connor has a 100% record of winning the All-Ireland after knocking Dublin out of the Championship
- Jack O'Connor has a 100% record of winning the League and All-Ireland in the first year of his stints as Kerry manager
- Jack O'Connor has a 100% record against Connaught teams in the Championship
- Jack O'Connor has already maintained his 100% record in All-Ireland semi-finals

First time in 24 years that Connacht teams has reached the All-Ireland senior final for three years in a row.

Back then

1996 Mayo lost
1997 Mayo lost
1998 Galway won

Now

2020 Mayo lost
2021 Mayo lost
2022 Galway ??

So one way or another history will be repeating itself in this final.

One other note, Jack O'Connor lost his last match against Galway, All-Ireland U21 semi final in 2017. Shane Ryan, Tom O'Sullivan, Brian Ó Beaglaoich, Gavin White, Killian Spillane and Sean O'Shea played in that game for Kerry. Galway had Kieran Molloy, Dylan McHugh, Cillian McDaid, Sean Kelly, Robert Finnerty.

Could have also mentioned Galway's path to victory in 98 and 01 included wins over Roscommon and a semi-final win over Derry :)

The winners of the 2017 u21 final were Dublin and from their team, Comerford, Murchan, Murphy, McMahon, Howard and P Small played on Sunday so the u21 omens are good for Kerry!

Yes more good omens for Galway.

How much are tickets for game ? I presume will be no curtain raiser?

€90 and €50

The GAA need more vriation in ticket prices. At a minimum these should be €100 for central Hogan and Cusack and €80 in the corners.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Hopefully past results will have nothing to do with the final, Galway's championship record against Kerry since the 60s is absolutely appalling.
So is Kerry's since 2009

In 1998 all the money was on Kildare and Galway went in under the radar.

Will the usual smug people here be getting their tickets as usual?
The "There's 8 of us always meet up for AIFs" people.

I'll get me coat....... ;D

Must be one of the few stadiums in Europe that charge the same price for all seated tickets for its show piece final.

I read elsewhere the reason why Croke Park didn't sell out on Sunday was because RTÉ had their studio in the Nally stand taking thousands off the capacity and the HQ had ticket allocation left aside for New York many of which wasn't used. Surely that isn't true?
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

I doubt Kilkenny had much either. What allocation would Kilkenny and New York had for junior final?

The studio would have had an impact on the capacity but not as much as some are making out. The hill/nally in total have a capacity of 13,000. Looking at the amount of space wasted it can't be taking up anymore than 2-3,000 spaces maximum. Crazy if they reduce the capacity for the finals to allow rte to have a studio there. Why can they not go back inside?

I'm guessing it is that but given everyone else in the country back working indoors and other sports in studios I'm not sure why it's different.

Referee announced. Interesting choice as he's from Tallys club.
