Tickets for this weekend’s Dublin V Mayo All-Ireland football semi-final

RTÉ reports:

The GAA has said that lessons will have to be learned from the outcry over the ticketing allocation for Saturday’s Dublin-Mayo All-Ireland football semi-final.

Tickets for the game went on sale Tuesday morning at 10am, a day later than usual due to the August Bank Holiday and many fans were left disappointed despite spending hours queuing in various outlets and/or the GAA’s online ticket outlet, tickets.ie.

Virtual queues online were 20,000 long at a stage…

    Amateurs!

    (except for the shirt-popping senior management who are paid “according to industry benchmarks”. Is the FAI a benchmark? Who can tell).

        I’m yet to meet someone who actually likes the GAA. They like the sport but hate the Association.

    I bought 1 adult, 2 kids tickets in Centra in Newbridge yesterday, after a 15 minute wait. Absolute bargain at €60 for all 3. Not all bad news. The obligatory “Hon Mayo,” of course.

    i wish they’d pay the players. where in the world would ya get it? most popular national sport, taking in millions, and not a player paid. pure greed.

          I wouldn’t rule them out this year Dav, they’re the team I’d fear most.

            Yeah. Mayo will break through one day. I just hope it’s not agin’st the Dubs and not this year. #fiveinarow

    Be grateful it’s not Ticketbarsteward handling it. Tickets would have been sold out in 10 mins but there’d be 47,000 platinum packages available on Viagogo for 5 times face value.

      Ticketmaster had tickets too.

      Anyone who should get tickets usually gets them in my experience.

    Here, lads, learnings is not a fupping word, not in the dictionary. If it gets in there, like the American use of literally, I pray for a swift death.

    1. Cian

      (a) it is a word. It is the plural of learning. What’s wrong, do you have a learning difficulty?
      (b) I 100% agree on your loathing of the misuse of literally. And wish the swift death upon those who misuse ‘literally’.

        “…his looks were very haggard, and his limbs and body literally worn to the bone…”
        Nicholas Nickleby Charles Dickens, 1839.
        Not defending it, just clarifying that the misuse of words as intensifiers is neither American nor contemporary.
