How do you get tickets for the GAA Hurling final replay on 28 September ?

Maybe one of our Irish forum members can help.  I looked at gaa.ie, but didn't see any tickets on sale there.  I also tried Clare GAA.  Anyone know where they are on sale?

Planning to fly in an out on the day with my dad and number one son.  My mum may come along if she wants to meet the family down the pub, doubt she'd care about the match, but she'd be handy to fetch the drinks and hot dogs!

Theres an Irish website called Toutless which deals in all things tickets including gaa tickets. Just found this site and it deals in swaps mainly, but you never know.

http://www.toutless.com/index.php?sid=0212e4d04b2f11b757628c795a5652b6

Maybe boardsie might be able to help also.

I'm no gaa expert though I come from Kilkenny originally. Grew up more interested in 'foreign sports' ie Football, rugby , cricketdisbelief

I think the replay is supposed to be a sellout. I'd find it hard to believe that they call sell another 82,000 tickets, but that's what the papers are saying.I'll see if I can think of any other ways besides paying over the odds from touts. Maybe join an obscure county's hurling forum and see if anyone has got a few tickets that they give to the counties that never win anything. Say you are from the BBC or somethingsmile

 From Kilkenny and not interested in hurling no.  Even I have been to see them win a final! (Against Galway in 1993)

 

Kilkenny341904, 1905, 1907, 1909, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1922, 1932, 1933, 1935, 1939, 1947, 1957, 1963, 1967, 1969, 1972, 1974, 1975, 1979, 1982, 1983, 1992, 1993, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012
Clare31914, 1995, 1997

 

I keep looking at gaa.ie, but nothing showing there.   Not exactly once in a lifetime, but I'm hoping to see the fourth win!

So hurling is when you drink too many whiskies and guinnesses, and GAA is the sound effect?? Sounds great fun!

 Are you supporting Clare? Which  Bob Geldof song has a reference to somewhere in County Clare? Same song has a reference to Cork, 'what are the chances' as Harry Hill might say.smile

Re Tickets I think it would be hard to get any without paying well over the odds. There is a website called Gumtree where people are asking for replay tickets openly, gumtree is a buy and sell type site:

I've nothing against hurling, but when I was younger was always afraid of a ball flying at a hundred miles an hour, and the odd hurley flying in my face. We didn't use helmets back in the late seventies needless to say.
