Social media has been awash the last few weeks with people looking for All Ireland football tickets. Fathers looking to give away their first-born, promising their daughter’s hand in marriage and favours being offered that are illegal in most parts of the world. You get the picture! Anecdotally this seems to be the worst year for those from Dublin or Mayo on the hunt the for tickets.
Equally every Tom, Dick and Harry organisation using social media seems to have a pair of All Ireland tickets up for grabs.
Nightclubs and farms ! A quick twitter search for win 2/two All Ireland tickets, will throw up over 200 non GAA organisations giving away tickets in the last fews days alone. I gave up counting after 200. Similar giveaways are happening all over Facebook.
With all these companies and websites giving away All Ireland tickets, It’s a wonder the counties and supporters have any for themselves. Is this reason why there seems to be a shortage of All Ireland football tickets for the ordinary supporter this year ?
