Interesting Limerick sold 300 season tickets last year and 1,300 this year. Munster and Leinster sell north of 10k season tickets, I'd say the Dubs sell a big number. Given when the GAA season kicks off they would make a perfect Christmas present. I'd say marketted properly they could have sold way more than 1,300 season tickets for the coming year given the buzz that has been around the county since the All Ireland.

Replying To Jack_Goff:  "In Munster there's no chance of that. Limerick, Clare, Waterford, Tipp and Cork fans will always choose to support hurling instead of football because it's more exciting to watch and more competitive."
not really that more exciting to watch if football is played well....cork played good football for years and still got no support bar the final or a kerry match in munster...competitiveness across the board is the biggest issue in football.

Nah hurling is just a better more exciting sport. Football hasn't been played right since Dublin accepted they couldn't beat the northern defensive brand and quit their entertaining all out attack style. Remember all through 2014 gavin used to love bragging in his post match interviews how he believes they should play the game in a certain way. He wasn't long changing his ways.
