The hunt is on. While any sense of giddiness at the novelty of being in an All-Ireland final has long gone from us, the ferocity of the ticket hunt is still – literally at this stage – a hardy annual. A million or so hopefuls into 82,500 won’t go so it’s dog-eat-dog out there.
Last year I did a few posts updating everyone on ticket draws so it makes sense to do the same again. In this post I’ll list the ones I’m aware of at this point in time but I’ll update it as I hear of other draws. If your own local club has a draw then please feel free either to drop me a line or post details of it in the comments and I’ll make sure to include it next time.
Ready? Right, here goes.
Mayo GAA have ten individual tickets in the next Mayo GAA Lotto draw, play by Friday to enter – details here;
Charlestown GAA club have a final preview event, 9th September, at which there’ll be a draw for two tickets – details here;
Owenmore Gaels GAA club have a draw for two tickets – details here;
St Patrick’s Lisbellaw Hurling club (Fermanagh) have a draw for two tickets – details here;
These are the only draws I’m aware of as yet. If last year is anything to go by, though, there’ll be loads more over the coming days so I’ll keep a note of them and post an update in due course.
By the way, tickets for the post-match banquet in CityWest are also on sale now. Full details on that are here.
