THIS YEAR’S ALL-IRELAND Ladies’ football finals have once again attracted a record crowd to Croke Park, with 56,114 people clicking through the turnstiles. 

It’s a considerable increase on last year’s gate of 50,141, and is made all the more impressive by the fact it was achieved amid ceaseless rain and at the end of a week dominated by build-up to the replay of the All-Ireland senior men’s final between Dublin and Kerry. 

The record crowd was announced at half-time of the senior final by RTÉ’s Marty Morrissey. 

Dublin sealed a third All-Ireland senior title in a low-scoring decider against Galway, winning 2-3 to 0-04.

Tipperary won the intermediate title with a five-point win over Meath while Louth were crowned Junior champions with a 3-13 to 2-6 win over Fermanagh.
