Replying To kiloughter:  "Read a match report that 14,606 in Carrick on Shannon. If that is true hats off to Leitrim as would think no more than 3 to 4k from Monaghan would travel given it was early Sat afternoon and result never in doubt. Also 8k at Fer Mon Ulster semi so using that as a yardstick as well. If the attendance yesterday is as is it would mean 30% of Leitrim's resident permanent population was at the match. Very impressive and a serious ratio making them the best supported team in the country proportionally even if it was a one off game."
I'd imagine that was a typo. TSG reported the attendance as 4 and a half thousand. 14,000 in Carrick would have that ground bursting at the seams and it wasn't half full judging by the footage I saw of the highlights.

Cheers for the correction. Saw the correct figure on the Indo just there. Thought it way too high when I initially saw it even if the Leitrim win over Louth generated some additional local interest.

What does Portlaoise hold now with health and safety restrictions? 20k? Probably only 4/5k? Thurles 24,000 seats making it a much superior option, especially for kids. I'd imagine they were expecting a bigger crowd for the game than they got too. I though there would have been over 30k at it. Was surprised to see one terrace closed.

One attendance to throw in to the mix -

Kildare Fermanagh 7,400

7400? Thats actually quite poor. They say about 10,000 in Portlaoise and at least half there were from Roscommon. About 12 from Cork and maybe 1500 from Tyrone.

Will the GAA lose out much with Mayo out of the championship or has the super 8s come in at the right time money wise for them, most counties involved will have large attendances at the super 8 matches anyway

7,400 is a good enough attendance for Kildare v Fermanagh when you take into account that there a crowd of over 10k for the double header in Portlaoise.

8,800 at Monaghan v Laois.
