The €2.75m shot that set up a replay

THE All-Ireland hurling final will add €2.75m to the GAA's coffers for a second successive year after yesterday's thrilling draw.

Clare and Cork will return to Croke Park on September 28 for a replay after Domhnall O'Donovan's late point brought the Bannermen level in stoppage time yesterday.

The GAA announced that, similar to last year's Galway-Kilkenny replay, admission prices would be cut. Stand tickets will be cut from €80 to €50, while Hill 16 tickets will be cut from €40 to €25.

It is planned to make 5,000 tickets available to juveniles in Clare and Cork at a cost of €10.

The replay has been fixed for Saturday fortnight to avoid a clash with the ladies' football finals the following day.
