GAA coffers must be overflowing

I attended the All-Ireland semi-final between Down and Kildare and had a great day out, helped obviously by a Down win. I paid a total of £40 (€48) for my ticket and got a rebate because of my age.

I have just been informed that ticket prices for the football final will be £70 (€84), a hike of 80pc over the semi-final price. This makes me furious.

There will be 80,000 fans on the day -- an increase of almost 20,000 over the Kildare game -- who will consume more food, more beer, buy more programmes and merchandise, thus increasing revenues.
