Quote from: Captain Obvious on July 05, 2024, 06:53:02 PMWe have entering a decade where All Ireland titles should be shared among a handful of counties. 

It will never be more than a handful in a given decade, and that is much better than one.

Last ten years Dublin 7, Kerry 2, Tyrone 1.    I expect the next ten years to be well shared out among 4 or 5 counties.   
I think (hope) that the 4 semi finalists this year will win at least 1 each this decade.
I'm not sure about Armagh if they don't get it done this year Campbell, Murnin, Grugan, Forker are all  big players approaching mid 30s and leaders within group who will be hard to replace.

Judging by ticketmaster looks like there'll be a big crowd Sunday.

You never quite know what seats they have made available etc. But Donegal people will follow the Messiah and perhaps Galway support will now get going.
They probably should bring a raincoat, judging by the current forecast, but rain should be familiar to Western seaboard people. But if they open the upper decks then these are dry at least.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

I've been keeping an eye on TM since tickets first went on sale. Lower tier tickets for central sections have never been available there, so maybe they're holding them back until all the worst seats have been purchased first. Either that or they've allocated them to the clubs or made them available through retail outlets, e.g. SuperValu, Centra. Can't see the crowd being any > 55K.

Hi lads.
Have been away so haven't really been concentrating on getting a ticket for Sunday until now.
I see on TM that currently available tickets seem to be either towards the end line or in the Upper tiers.
What are the chances of Lower Hogan a bit more central appearing before the weekend do ye think?
Cheers

Sundays will always get a bigger crowd imo - Saturday games are awful, hate the sight of them, travelling to & from Dublin with Saturday traffic, giving up your Saturday evening/night (if driving). I actually think Saturday AI semis should be banned!

According to Crokepark.ie the expected attendance for this match on Sunday is 60k  and for Saturday 55k

Which are pretty creditable crowds, given that the likes of Cork or Dublin are not involved.

Big bandwagon following Cork Hurlers at the moment but would take something serious to change with their footballers to attract close to the same interest.

I would be one of the first to criticize Armagh folk, but they aren't the ones to blame for that lower turnout on the Saturday. Kerry fans letting the country down.

What'd we ever do? :D

Think the only people I've spoken to who aren't going are people on holidays!

Cork is a hurling county and always had a big following I thought?
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

When was the last time Mayo brought a big crowd to a game? 2019 semi v Dublin?

Can't hold a candle to Dublin, Cork & Limerick (hurling) or even Armagh any more

Ah Jez, Mayo were the Golden Goose for the GAA coffers for the last 20 years! Their football season tickets were impossible to join.

Look at the Crowd of Mayo People who went to New York this year.
