Yep and they were used in the 2 U20 and 1st Round Minor game.
Now we're in August and seeing as Croke Park seems to be exempt from spreading Covid 20 or 25% of capacity should be allowed.

Re All Ireland tickets
How many are unavailable due to 3/5/10 year seats, various other bodies and the Club allocation?
Not many left then leaving a small allocation if 6 teams involved.
Why not have an All Ireland weekend with the Minor, U20 and lower Grade Finals on Saturday with loads of tickets for the 6 Counties involved and reasonably priced so whole families can afford to go?
Big Senior Final on the Sunday and have whatever you want beforehand..  u16s, Bunscoil or whatever.

Some lad earlier saying Club and Inter County are like chalk and cheese.....but obviously not in Hurling, Camogie or Ladies football ;)

1,500 attendance allowed at Final.
Don't know how many went on public sale at 4pm but all gone by 4.06.
I'm far from a let it rip merchant but 24k in an enclosed place like Croker and only 1, 500 in an open situation like the Hyde with acres of space around it.... :-\
Around 4,500 would be a similar % as the Croker 24k  and far more fresh air, open space etc.
Anyway got a ticket.

Maybe it's a long blip ;D
Sligo were very competitive in the 2001 to 2010 decade and could regularly make the BIG 3 sweat.

Sligo? Cavan?
Temporary blips.
Sligo are operating with a bit of a handicap with the town being a soccer stronghold. E.g Ros Co Board area pop 61k has around 6,500 registered players, Sligo pop 65k has around 4,800.

Wobbler, I agree that the Tailtean  Cup could go the way of TM and the AI ' B' as the GAA seem intent on  making it another meaningless tournament with all sorts of escape hatches for teams to get out of it.
As for myself I favour copying the System that serves well in  Club football, Club and County hurling, Club and County Camogie  and Club and County Ladies football.
Graded AI Championships with promotion/relegation. Now if that's to be doubled up with the League or whatever off  ye go.
However that's not what's planned to be going to this special Congress which was to be held in October.

Weaker football Counties and the reason
Hurling -Wexford, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Clare,  Limerick,  Waterford
Population Fermanagh *, Leitrim,  Longford, Carlow.
Tipp and Clare pinching above their weights recently, as did Wexfird and Limerick some years ago.
Overseas London.
No excuse Antrim,  Louth Wicklow.

* 48% of population not interested.

Some posters here seem to have the gift of prophecy!

Bet the 3 winning sides  aren't crying all weekend over the lack of coverage.
Apart from Offaly none of the other 5 hurling teams ever got much media coverage as they played their minority sport.

Oh Jesus, I wish they’d scrap that throwing the ball over bar nonsense. It’s an absolute abomination in the game.
Agree 100%.
Unskilled sh1te.
Also throw goals aren't allowed so why allow throw points??

Forwards scoring points a thing of the past in Dulin underage?
3-3 in u20 Final and 1-3 Minor.
Meath now play Ros/Sligo.
Supposed to be in Tullamore.

The current proposals both have every team playing in their Provincials.
Having a graded AI inter Co Championship should stand or fall on its own merits I.e is it good for the game and especially in those Counties in the lower grade.
What media think is important is their business.
Mind you the GAA in giving TV rights could say. "For every 2 top tier matches you sho you must show 1 lower tier".

Talking of Tiers
Sligo had to give a walkover last year to Galway, while Fermanagh had to play a game without a scatter of players.
Will Cork be conceding

Anybody read much in the papers about Sligo, Leitrim, Longford, Antrim or Waterford footballers in the last few weeks?
