18,864 in the Hyde last Sunday.
I wonder who were the 6 who didn't turn up?
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Just hazarding a guess here but it might have been the six Roscommon forwards in the second half... ;) ;) ;) ;)
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not too sure.

If my team conceded 4-24 or so in their last game I'd be keeping very quiet about it here teams shortcomings ;)

Ah lighten up lad, you left the door open and I couldn’t resist...

Very aware of our shortcomings believe me..

Leinster Football final attendances 1980 to 1990 inclusive

1980    50,276
1981    28,398
1982    32,504
1983    36,921
1984    56,051
1985    33,423
1986    43,765
1987    48,122
1988    42,302
1989    56,839
1990    53,847

Someone mentioned the possibility of the worst Leinster final attendance since the 80s. Were the 80s that low? I think the Dublin-Offaly 83 final was my first Leinster final and I seem to remember it as big crowd, certainly a big atmosphere! I wasn't even a teenager so maybe the mind is playing tricks

What was Meath and Laois in 1991? I suspect that might be the one of the few occasions it has fallen below 40000 in the last 30 years. Westmeath and Laois in 04 and Dublin Westmeath in 2016 being the other. 2017 was an aberration that won't occur again.

Thanks, I didn't think it would be that low. Of course the 230,000+ who turned up the Meath and Dublin matches would have more than made up for it.

It was played on a Saturday and was Meath 8th Leinster game that year. Westmeath/Laois had attendance 56,449 and replay played following had lower crowd of  38,300. Very unusual crowd was much lower for replay.

Most clubs would mobilise buses of juveniles etc to Leinster finals but with replay maybe just a week later it can be hard to do it two weeks in a row. Could account for some of the shortfall

Kildare minors also played that day, it was during our well supported days so that would have added for a few thousand as well.
