    Not much time for the football finalists to swap ticket allocations with Galway and Limerick giving the football semis are only on next weekend and the Hurling final is the week after

    Could I ask the mods if they'd rethink their policy about not letting clubs put links up for fundraising draws for tickets if possible!!??

    This is going to be absolutely nutso for fans. Best of luck to all of you on the hunt. It was crazy enough last year, I can only imagine what it's going to be like now. Limerick has nearly 2x the population of Waterford.

    On the hunt for ideally 3 tickets for this but would take 1 or 2 tbh...

    The killmacud crokes sevens is always a good place to source a ticket if you didn't have any luck getting sorted.

    Any sign of tickets appearing or will it be gold dust again this year ?

    That's the one thing I miss about Kilkenny not getting to the final every year, there was always a spare ticket or two knocking about .

    Tis early days yet. Same last year till tickets started filtering through from other counties on the Saturday. As long as every potential source has been contacted then hold tight till at least Saturday.

    That's what normally happens but the only exception was the waterford vs Galway all Ireland last year where tickets were still gold dust and proved to be so when I arrived at the Croke Park.

    Lots of people with signs etc.

    The value of a season ticket comes into its own.

    I don't know anyone over the past number of years who wanted to go to the All Ireland and went to Dublin for the weekend and did not end up attending the final, tickets always come around. A few lads I know in Tipperary secured tickets for Sunday through various channels. Seems to be a few floating around already.

    The All Ireland 7s I found out to be a no go for tickets unlike others (every second person out there is at the same thing), better off floating around the bars of Dublin on Saturday evening asking.

    I agree with you , last year was the hardest year to try get a ticket as a neutral fan.
    Not a sniff of a ticket could I get anywhere, I am expecting the same this year with Limerick hoping to capture Liam.

    Does anybody who has got tickets for the final with their season ticket in past know if the under 16 ticket can be used by an adult? They cost the same 80 euros.....

    Ah yeah if you don't have a ticket heading up then it'll be like last year I'd say with limerick looking to end a famine. Trying to get a ticket on the Sunday is just pure luck. There'll be loads with signs but you'd probably have as much luck chatting to people in a queue for breakfast and floating around the pubs having a pint or two on the way

    Tis hard to head up Saturday night with commitments at home. I know what you're saying though. I didn't see a single ticket change hands on the Sunday last year.

    I saw a ticket fall out of the arse pocket of a Waterford supporter last year outside Croke Park before that game. I picked it up and roared after him that he dropped it.

    I nearly got raped by lads with no tickets. They were swarming everywhere.

    I never saw it that bad before.

    When I had the season ticket you didn't use the actual season ticket card for the all Ireland, they just posted you an all Ireland ticket to your home address. There's no special under sixteen tickets for finals so as far as I know anyone could use that ticket once they have it in hand. I stand to be corrected on that though.

    Yes, that's what I thought. But I got the tickets in the post yesterday and it says U16 on then in small print

    Oh, didn't know that. I wouldn't say you'd have trouble getting in on the day but that's easy for me to say, they might be clamping down on that or anything. Not sure I'd chance it if any other options were available.

    None of the kids on the gates are going to look at that. Once it scans it's fine.

    Thanks for the replies. I agree it would be risky to leave it until the day I am going to see if I can swap it with someone.

    They may be strict enough, as the initial cost of the Season Ticket is only €30 compared to €120 for an Adult and the ticket prices through out the year were cheaper for a u16 compared to the Adult prices. So even though you are paying the same for the All Ireland ticket, the investment to get the ticket is massively less than what an Adult would have paid, hence why u16 is on the ticket.

    Fromm GAA.ie - "Adults will not be permitted entry using a juvenile ticket."

    Likewise looking everywhere for a ticket and would bite anyone's hand off for one.Managed pick one up for last year's final off a mate of the brothers in McGraths bout half 2 but place was full of people with signs looking for ones. Don't think as many will travel up from Galway this year as people were desperate to be there to see them break the hoodoo last year.

    Ya same as above. Been at most the games this year and last and couldn't get one for the final last year at all. To make things worse, my TV gave up at about 66mins so had to get the rest on the radio!! Trying everywhere for one but no luck as of yet. Gaillimh abú
