It was expected to happen but perhaps not quite as fast as this – with nearly two weeks to go to our All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin, the match has now sold out. Dublin GAA confirmed this on Facebook earlier tonight. There’s going to be one hell of an atmosphere at HQ for the 30th August Croke Park showdown.
Separately, the Mayo News has reported that joint manager Pat Holmes confirmed at tonight’s semi-final press event that both David Clarke and Tom Cunniffe were back in full training. Both should be okay for Sunday week. Pat said that everyone, apart from the unfortunate Michael Conroy, was fit and ready for selection for the big match.
