Gaelic games

Would like to attend the hurling match at Gaelic Games on Sept 3, 2017. Does anyone know how to get tickets? Will they be hard to get (I believe it's like a play-off match)?

I'm afraid hens teeth will be easier to buy than all Ireland final tickets. Tickets are distributed through the county boards and generally go to GAA club members as demand always far exceeds supply. I'd suggest you find a perch in a good pub and enjoy the game and atmosphere along with the thousands of others without tickets

No chance getting one unless your willing to pay big bucks! Best watch it in a bar close to croke park for great atmosphere! Try and take in a rugby game when over. Our team is Leinster , shouldent be a problem getting a ticket for one of their pro 12 games when your here

Mightn't be that difficult on the day to get a ticket depending on what teams are in the final. The Hurling is always easier than the Football Final to get a ticket for. If Kilkenny are in it, it's usually easy enough.

If you have never been before then its probably not the game to go to simply its a final because supporters probably less likely to be helpful in explaining the rules.
