With the hurling final now out of the way – congrats again to the neighbours – the football decider starts to swing centre-stage. As it does, the ticket hunt is set to become ever more frenzied.
The Connaught Telegraph reported yesterday (here) that the county’s official allocation for this year’s final is 16,500. This figure includes upwards of 4,000 season tickets.
Clearly, demand will – as it always does – greatly outstrip available supply. Conventional economic theory won’t solve this problem either but furious beating of the bushes and calling in all those favours might help.
So too could entering a few draws and, in that regard, it’s time for an update on the draws I’ve been told about. As with the previous post I did the other day on this very topic, if you know of another draw and have details of it, just post that info in the comments. I’ll do another update later in the week.
Here goes, then:
