17,600 at the Hurley Final.

How come the participants can toss for the venue for this, but such a thing is not possible for football finals?

They don't toss. Tipp and Kilkenny have a home and away agreement for National League finals.

How come the hurlers don't have a nervous breakdown at the thoughts of playing a final anywhere other than Croke Park.

Entitlement?

I was watching the Dublin club championship on TG4 last night . a very attractive looking double header with ballyboden ballymun, st bridgets and kilmacud   all playing and only a handful of people there . much less than a similar attraction in Mayo or most other counties I'd bet
there was a high level of football though the results were uneven and big names on all teams.
surely more could be done to promote this

I'd say Dublin would be a good way down the list nationwide in terms of attendances at club games alright.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Vast majority of Jackeens not interested in Gaelic games other than the County Senior Bandwagon.
Their U21 or Minor teams seldom get more than 500 supporting them.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Dragging Crokes & Boden over to Parnell Park for the game, would have a knock on effect on attendance. As would the games not being knock out anymore.

Nor the senior hurlers either, was at a Leinster QF v Wexford in Croke Park 2/3 years back and there was only around 12k there, and that was with both Wexford teams and Kildare playing also.

killmacud  to donnycarney  is is 13,4 K most country clubs would have people travelling further to training . we used to go 20k without the power of Dublin bus as well

The last time any Dublin fan travelled further than that for a game was Thurles in 2001.
Half of them couldn't find their way back and ended up settling in Portlaoise.

Probably 500 sets of traffic lights in that city trip.

For public order offences I presume.

It's a short journey in distance but factor in the lights, traffic, reduced speed etc. and it is a long enough spin at any time. Unfortunately no decent venue on the southside bar O'Toole Park so their options are limited.

is that why Dublin refuse to play their home games there out in the sticks. it would suit country clubs like St Vincents though
