Welsh FA don't allow tickets for away matches to be sold on websites either so even finding somewhere where they might be sold is going to be near impossible, even Seatwave don't have them and that must be a first.

Tried booking the train up to Dublin for the Wales game, Irish Rail website only allows bookings up until the weekend before hand.

Usually allow you to book eight weeks in advance if I remember correct. Think I read somewhere some dates aren't availabke due to some upgrade to site or something. Might be worth ringing them although will probably cost more.

Isn't there a UEFA ban on alcohol being served at games?

Yep, they will be open. They weren't for the Scotland game last season but they are for this game. The treatment of soccer fans v rugby fans is atrocious. But the FAI are at least doing something this time.

Only at tournaments, poxy 0.5% in France last summer at the actual games, but qualifying tournaments, for most games, alcohol is available in the stadiums.

Not in the south stand anyway, from memory, which is hazy tbh, but as far as I remember, I had beers at the Georgia game. I definitely did at the Germany and Bosnia games last season, and at games earlier in this qualifying campaign

Must have been either Premium Level or non-alcoholic?
Not sure what the deal is this time but bars are open
Will stick to pub either way.

There hasnt been a beer served at a competitive home game since Euro 2012 at any of the bars around my seat - turnstile O. I asked the question on the FAIs facebook page and was told it was a UEFA imposed ban.

Bars are open for Wales game and it won't be .5% or whatever that crap was in France.Amount of dopes buying it was funny,a fella told me it was €9 and he was disgusted when he found out it was basically non alcoholic.
Usually only premium level bars open and none during the game.
Swiss game last year on Good Friday all bars open and packed during the second half,that was a friendly though.
I can't remember the last time I saw the bars open at an international but seems like years.Anyone know?

I was told by someone connected to FAI.I asked for similar and was told to take their word for it.

Makes no odds to me as I doubt I'll drink in the ground.Pissy lager for €7

In a way its good that no drink was allowed at the soccer matches .

I was at the Ireland Australia rugby match last November where drink was allowed and it was an absolute farce.
I had the misfortune of having an aisle seat and the amount of people up and down to the bars loaded down with drink was ridiculous.
It was like a stampede at times .

Who are these imbeciles who pay good money to go to a match and are only interested in drinking and blocking other peoples views.
