Fine Gael Senator Michelle Mulherin, who sparked outrage after accusing the GAA of "discrimination", was sent two tickets for the All-Ireland final by the Mayo County Board.

The tickets were posted to the home of Ms Mulherin's mother. Ms Mulherin received a major backlash after accusing the GAA of discrimination because TDs, but not senators, were given tickets by the GAA.

It's not known whether Ms Mulherin attended yesterday's game between Dublin and her home county. However, her FG colleague Senator Catherine Noone, who also complained to the GAA, did attend the match.
