After a number of poor attendances at provincial championship games the GAA have slashed tickets prices by €5 but only up to and including the All-Ireland semi-finals. They have imposed a €10 price hike on All-Ireland hurling and football final tickets.
Tickets for the opening round of the All-Ireland qualifiers for both codes have been reduced to €15 for entry to the stand and €10 for terrace.
"The GAA recognises the need to encourage patrons to attend our games and this price cut signals our intent to ensure our supporters continue to engage with and follow our championship games," said GAA President Christy Cooney.
Up until the semi-finals, clubs can also avail of group passes for adult members which are €10 each, as well as another group offer where juveniles enter for €3 with one adult free for every 10 children.
Meanwhile, former Limerick star Andrew O'Shaughnessy, who quit the county panel last month, scored one of the goals when Kilmallock trounced Garryspillane in the Limerick senior hurling championship.
Graeme Mulcahy, who played for Limerick in their heartbreaking defeat against Waterford last Sunday, also scored two of the goals in the 5-15 to 0-14 win for the reigning champions.
Niall Moran scored eight points, seven frees, when helping Ahane beat Knockainey by 1-15 to 1-9 in another group game.
