I thought there would have been more than 6,059 at Sligo v Roscommon.
Finest GAAboard moment: finished joint first on week 2 of the League prediction competition.

We outnumbered the locals 2 or 3 to 1.
It was a sh1te wet day and changing the fixture from Sunday at short notice ruled a lot of people out.
Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

Oh yeah, I forgot the last minute-ish change.

Looking like a very poor turnout in Croke Park today for Leinster semi finals. Although can't get a stream of it to confirm but few tweets indicating it. Very poor decision from Leinster council to put it there and not even double up the U20 game.

GAA reaping what they sow now with ticketing shambles also, football crowds are struggling mostly due to poor GAA administration decisions from Croke Park.

Attendance in Armagh was stated as 13 thousand and something. Now the ground is supposed to hold 17500 and it wasn't a quarter empty. Actually I think it was even more crowded for the Armagh = Tyrone league game, but what is the origin of these gaps? Are they not counting children?

Agree there it looked a full house. Frankly I wouldn't trust the GAA figures as they don't seem accurate.

Cavan Donegal had 15,000,  but there was no way it was only half full.

Is this not what all the buying tickets on-line is about?

So the GAA can say how many people are in attendence.

Crazy stuff if they're not accurate.

I think the cashless shite is more about money saving as usual from GAA. I was told the cost of handling the cash through bank lodgings etc and also the inevitable cash that went missing at times  meant they were happy to go all in on cashless.

Even though it meant lots of elderly people were left abandoned trying to get tickets and crowd numbers are actually down since it's brought in but supposedly they are getting more money from less crowds due to reasons above.

Couldnt get Jog2, but on BBC it looked like good few seats spare on halfway, definitely big crowd in , big Derry support
