Todays attendance in @CrokePark was 36,574 #AllianzLeague


Nice little earner for the GAA. Their Golden Goose keeps laying the Golden eggs!

Modest enough crowd for a double bill with Dublin involved.
Down over 17,000 on last year. They can't keep banking on Dublin and neglecting elsewhere and almost spitting on club football. Attendances are dropping every year and club football attendances are leaving many clubs hanging by a thread. The change in the past 10 years is drastic and the new bagman Director Ryan won't address it.

It was a bigger crowd than the 2013 and 2015 league finals involving Dublin and around the same as 2014. Last year’s was so high due to it being kerry and 2016 was the one off Easter rising celebrations. Yesterday’s attendance would have been one of the higher attendances in the last 30 years. It was a decent crowd given it was Easter Sunday and one of Leinster biggest games of the year on across the city.
36k it would have left about 10K outside the gate at thomond park

All due respects to Galway but unles its a Dublin Kerry final there are alot of dubs supporters that coudnt be bothered going. Its be a worrying trend, the number of supporters coming to support the Dubs is decreasing year on year.

That's nonsense

Wonder what the breakdown of supporters was, there was 6000 or so in Cavan when they player tipp. Would there have been 10/15k from the other 3 counties total?

I'd say Cavan/Ros 6k between us.
2 parents and 2 children travelling from say Castlerea would be forking out at least  €150 for the day.
Too much for a match that didn't really matter and was on TV anyway and no doubt more important things to spend €150 on.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Was 9,000 in Croker on Saturday I'd 5000 of these were from carlow about 2000 from Laois and I'd say Fermanagh and Armagh had about 1000 each infact id say Armagh only had about 6/700 there!

There'll probably be over 10k less at the hurling final today that the football final but it will be a full stadium and brilliant atmosphere

Most counties want to play in Croker and would have been there whoever was in the final, but don't let the truth get in the way of the anti-Dub begrudgery

Watching the atmosphere at the hurling today and the pathetic one for the football finals says it all.

If you can't get any crowd in Croker get it out of there

Where's the anti Dublin thing in my comment, it's more the fact that's there's no appropriately sized decent stadium in the Midlands or east that would be ideal for this game.

How come the participants can toss for the venue for this, but such a thing is not possible for football finals?
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

How come the hurlers don't have a nervous breakdown at the thoughts of playing a final anywhere other than Croke Park.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

All depends who's in it, a lot of teams have home away arrangements, others like if it was Galway Kilkenny would be neutral and thurles would have been used. It helps that hurling is almost exclusively in the south so teams are a lot happier not going up to Dublin for the final.

Same idea, Kilkenny or Tipp play at home, Dublin play at home.
