I always want to see Dublin lose.
I always want to see Kerry lose unless they play Dublin.
I always want to see Mayowestros and Galway lose unless they play Dublin or Kerry.
When Mwr play Galway my instinct is to be for Mwr :-[
No idea why.

I always want to see Laythrum win unless they play us even though the ****s hate our guts.
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

I wanted Roscommon to win in 1962 and in 1980, not because I wanted Kerry to lose but because I had never seen Roscommon win anything.

Is John O’Connor still around (wasn’t he Roscommon’s answer to Mario Kempes?).

The one thing no one has mentioned is it a case the GAA are compensating cost for the amount of free tickets given away. i.e 2 to every club, sponsers, dignataries etc. Id say its a fair few thousand.

Are two tickets not sent out to every club and do they pay for them? i thought they were free all these years.

You need to take a more active role in your club if that is the case.
Clubs have to pay for the two tickets they are sent

Was in America at one stage.
Obviously ended up in Donegal as he had a son in the Donegal panel recently.

The younger brother was friendly with the son of an ex GAA president and it was a serious amount of free tickets that they got. It was way more than 50 IIRC.

Yes the former presidents get loads of free tickets all right. Hope that continues!!!

Was £5 for the dead rubber between Tyrone and Dublin in Omagh, so €7 doesn’t seem as bad for an All-Ireland Final lol. Anyway if you really want to save money download an app called ‘GAA Match Programmes’ and you can download programmes for £0.99.

I wonder how much a 1982 match program would sell for now?
Or is there a market for such memorabilia...

Had a look on ebay and couldn't find a program, but did find this yoke




Seller (from Omagh!) looking for £29.50 plus £4.95 postage

Probably to pay for all the hankies to deal with the crying since the Kerry game.
