Morning all. Another day has dawned – a nice enough one too by the looks of it – and despite yesterday’s second half drama we’re still in this year’s championship, one of only eight counties who can say that at this stage.
I’ve no time, due to other commitments, to do a trawl through the match reports and all that today. And neither do you because you’ve got your tickets for next Saturday to get sorted and they need sorting today.
As I predicted in advance earlier in the week, there’s set to be the mother and father of a scramble for tickets for Saturday. We’re in action on the double – with the Junior All-Ireland final against Kerry at 2pm ahead of our All-Ireland SFC quarter-final against Tyrone at four – and once our day’s business is done, Dublin and Donegal are then on at six.
Croke Park is set to be full to the rafters and so tickets will be a precious commodity. Season ticket holders will NOT be able to avail of the Bring a Friend for this one and while some tickets will go on general sale – online and through the usual retail outlets – at nine this morning, they’re bound to be snapped up rapidly. There will, of course, be further tickets distributed via the clubs but these will also be limited in number.
The bottom line is that if you want to be there next Saturday, you need to get your posterior into gear this morning to do what you can to make this happen. The lads are going to need support like never before next Saturday so the more of us there to roar them on, the better.
Once you’re sorted on the ticket front, don’t forget the MOTM poll, which will remain open all day. Back later on this evening with the result on that one.
