Interesting from Moyles here, how can an 82,000 seater stadium that isn't even half full have no hot food? It cost him 90 quid to go with his 2 kids, what a rip off and there isn't even food available? What sort of circus are the GAA running in Croke Park and it never should have been there in the first place. Disgraceful.

He chose to pay 30 quid for central Hogan tickets for his two kids. He could have got 5 quid tickets in the Cusack (probably not central) or Davin.

Seems like all the Kildare and Westmeath lads cleaned the place out of hot dogs! Only chips available by the time Moyles got there!

Gerry Thornley was on newstalk a few weeks ago saying how the catering facilities in Croker were miles ahead of the Aviva. I was thinking then that he can’t have been in Croker too often.

Where he chose to sit isn't the point. He paid a bit more for better seats, but why are kids tickets only in one stand? This is gouging, plain and simple. 30k for a Leinster semi finaldouble header is meh, but kids tickets should have been free. There was zero advertising I saw either.

His point is unfortunately correct. Croker simply isn't a good day out compared to the other options in Dublin in terms of entertainment on or off the pitch and value for money. And that is down to poor and lazy decisions in D3. No hot food? And that's not an unusual situation. You simply won't have that problem in LR or the RDS.

They are turning people away from most LoI grounds at the moment. For reasons nobody really understands fans have flocked post Covid. The Irish teams crowds are way up. Rugby are doing great spectator wise across the pro teams. The GAA are only selling kids tickets in 1 stand and can't organise ice-cream and hot food for the Leinster Seni Finals. Time to pull up the socks and fix the bits that you can fix before people start going to the rugby instead.

A Joe Brolly style contribution. You think you have a good point, and you stick in a load of lies to try and exaggerate it, and instead it turns your post into a steaming pile 😂😂😂😂

The Leinster senior intercounty football championship is suffering. What's that, 10 games of football a year?
There is a big world outside of those 10 games.

Eh? You're talking shite about people turned away from LOI grounds and you've been called out and you have nothing to back it up.

Look at RTE headline this morning 10 arrested for match fixing in League of Ireland! Things haven't changed much obviously then so.

I'm not though. Nearly every game is sold out. The point being other sports are seeing a spike in crowds post covid. The GAA are not and it's fair to ask why.

Not that I care, but are you unaware soccer has seen a huge crowd increase post Covid or just playing the thick?

You're talking shite.  Tallaght stadium capacity is 8k and the average attendance for  Rovers game in 2022 is 5k. They're by far the best supported team.

SHAMROCK ROVERS
The Hoops finished 2019 with the highest average attendance (3,445) and have continued apace in 2022 with an average so far of 5,318.

It seems that there isn’t a lot of money being wagered by Kildare supporters on their team. Paddy Power is offering the following odds: Dublin 1/7 Kildare 11/2.
