The GAA have reduced ticket prices for the All-Ireland Hurling Final replay on 30th September following yesterday’s climactic draw at Croke Park.
Kilkenny and Galway served up a classic at Headquarters yesterday but following a dramatic late point from Galway’s Joe Canning the teams will have to do it all over again at the end of the month.
Upon Barry Kelly’s whistle being blown for the last time yesterday, the Twittersphere and messageboards went into overdrive about how the result was Christmas come early for the GAA.
The GAA are in for another handy windfall from the replay on the 30th September but in a show of empathy with the man on the street the bosses at Croke Park have decided that tickets for the game will be reduced.
The Irish Examiner has reported that stand tickets, which for the final were €80, will be reduced for the replay with the GAA confirming prices have been lowered for the third meeting of Galway and Kilkenny in this year’s championship.
Former Kilkenny hurler Eddie Brennan believes it is the right way to go about it and on his Twitter page he expressed his own beliefs on the matter.
The 33-year old tweeted: “Opportunity (for the) GAA to give people a break & show empathy for supporters half price tickets for the replay would be a brilliant gesture.”
Full details on ticket prices are as follows: Stand tickets €50 (down from €80) and Terrace €25 (down from €40).
