Today, please spare a thought for the press photographer. When the teams run out for their bench photo they have half a millisecond to take the photo.

Has any photographer ever said "wait lads, there's a player still making his way"?
Anyone with more than 11,000 posts on GAA Board should be awarded two tickets.

Figures taken from 2023 GAA Report.

How the ticket allocation sat last year from Daniel Hussey

So over 20,000 non Galway,Armagh supporters in attendance for this All Ireland final.

More than double that figure of non Galway / Armagh fans is it not?

23,896 but some of the season ticket holders, corporate and matchday teams would be Armagh and Galway.

It would be more interesting to know the county allocations.

Quote from: StephenC on July 16, 2024, 02:43:38 PMYou lucky, lucky bastards. Every year only 2 counties get to moan about ticket allocation, nepotism, people not from the 2 counties going to the final, people wanting to go who are not members of a club .....

Enjoy every minute of it!
It's been too long.

Kind of torn between being happy that its less than 2 weeks away or annoyed that there isn't a whole pile of time to enjoy the build up compared to years ago.

I agree. The short turnaround time sucks but c'est la vie.

Whilst Rian make a great goal-mouth catch in the dying minutes of extra time, a Kerry player knocked the ball out of his hands and Blaine made a great save. Thank heavens for Blaine!

Quote from: illdecide on July 11, 2024, 09:07:28 AMIn all my years I've never seen a more low key All Ireland semi final in my life, very little talk or buzz around the town and I'm not aware of how many tickets have been purchased but Croke Park will probably be just over half full which is crap for atmosphere

I think its a downside of the compressed season.
According to Ulster's finest, this sort of thing is a-okay, but them Wolfs Tone boyos, hell no.
Ronaldo would be great in the half forward line, and Messi would be a tricky wee corner forward. Also Rondaldo probably a better hurler so he gets my vote

Quote from: From the Bunker on July 08, 2024, 11:31:21 PMGood to see Novak Djokovic give a verbal two fingers to the Wimbledon crowd. Wonder does this all harp back to him rightly not taking the Vaccine. It's good to see a man not afraid to take on the Establishment.

Awww don't start that again.

Djok is a good guy. I remember he used to do dances after he won a match. How many others do that?

Buy new cheap brushes. They really are dirt cheap.

One man's blatent free is another man's fair tackle.

Quote from: thejuice on July 07, 2024, 09:49:10 PMYou know yourself it probably won't be publicized until after the event. I don't understand how Meath co board can be so quiet after what went on this year.

When they were appointed they were all talk of ambition to win trophies etc. I suppose we've won some hurling, ladies football and underage but long way off at senior football and club.

Would you say that Meath have the talent to compete?

How long would you give a new manager to produce results?
Jim Alister wasted an enormous amount of money asking nonsensical questions in Stormont.

I'm looking forward to english MPs telling him to eff off.

Does anyone else suffer from non sequitur?

I do, and am looking forward to the semi-final against Kerry.
