GAA cut ticket prices for All-Ireland hurling final replay again

We’re getting quite used to this two-legged hurling final arrangement at this stage.

There were plenty of tickets around last week ahead of the drawn game.

THE GAA HAS has announced plans to cut ticket prices for the All-Ireland senior hurling final replay but the association is still in line for a €3m windfall after yesterday’s pulsating draw at Croke Park.

It’s the third year in a row in which the hurling decider has ended in a tie and like previous seasons, stand tickets will be reduced to €50 from €80 while a spot on the terrace will set fans back €25. Children will be entitled to €10 tickets, officials say.

82,179 spectators attended yesterday’s game and there will be another sellout crowd expected for the replay.

The Hawkeye system judged that John O’Dwyer’s late attempt from a free for Tipperary had drifted wide and the Premier county were denied a potentially dramatic winning score.

The classic encounter saw the teams tied at 3-22 to 1-28 to ensure there will be a replay for a third successive year. Kilkenny and Galway drew two years ago after Joe Canning’s late free while Domhnall O’Donovan was the Clare hero last year when his last-gasp point drew them level with Cork.

The replay has been fixed for Saturday, 27 September at 5pm in Croke Park with the All-Ireland ladies football final between Cork and Dublin set to be on Sunday, 28 September.
