Still plenty of tickets available for the Hill, Hogan lower and Cusack lower for the Leinster final. Can't this game breaking 40K. Can't see either the Kildare & Meath Juniors having any support at 35 a ticket.

don't forget a lot of those "official attendences" from the 1980's didn't include the supporters climbing over the Hill 16 and all the kids that were lifted over the turnstiles, not to mention cash being taken at the turnstiles.

I was at the 1983 final between Dublin and Offaly, place seemed packed. The official attendance was only 36,900.
Funny math if you ask me.

Munster Hurling Final officially sold out 24 hours after ticklers went on general sale. All Ireland Final type demand. The GAA must be loving these attendances in the round robin hurling.The Munster Football Final should get close to 40,000 tonight as well.

Less than 2k I'd estimate at Laythrum v Louth.
Luckily a good few of us were there for the minors
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Decent crowd in Longford, 5-6k I would estimate.

One thing I have noticed, when going bad you see less and less families at the games, just the odd hards.
