Tickets are now available for the NFL finals at Croke Park on Sunday week, where our Division 1 decider against the Donkey Ayters will be the main course on the menu (throw-in at 4 pm) following the Division 2 hors d’oeuvre served up by Armagh and Down at 2 pm.
Because it’s just the secondary national title that’s on offer on April 25th, there’s no danger of anyone getting killed in the stampede for tickets and many patrons will, I guess, leave it ’till the day itself to sort out gaining entry to HQ. If you do opt to do this, tickets will be on sale from the GAA ticket offices on Dorset Street and on the North Circular Road (opposite Gill’s pub).
Those looking for a scatter of tickets together (I’m in this particular cohort) are probably better off buying online and anyone choosing this option needs to head here. Tickets are priced at €25 for adults, €10 for students/OAPs and €5 for chisellers, which isn’t, I reckon, totally off the wall for a league final. You’d never know – we might even win this one.
