Where Those Tickets Really Go
Anyone who looks for tickets for All-Ireland finals, once they've considered the price of course, may have been tempted to ask what time dinner would be served?
Croke Park confirmed that stand seating - irrespective of location - was to be €600 while standing on Hill 16 would set you back €30.
To add insult to injury - because the effort to acquire such a ticket
multiplies proportionately depending on how hard you have to work to get one - the following break down of All-Ireland final ticket allocations should really leave you seething.
