All Ireland Replay Profits

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Hi all just as a note to thanks JP Mc Manus for his donation to all the clubs in Ireland ( €100,000 per county) last year. To mark this can the GAA do the same from the All Ireland football final reply. By giving (€60,000) per county to go to the clubs.
If we ask the question where does all the GAA profits go we are told the it goes to county development and county teams. Show the clubs respect and give them what they deserve.
Comment if you agree.

I think that one of the 2 future All Ireland football semis should be in Clones. The other in Croke park. Also hurling semi should be in Pairc Uí Chaoimh, Cork. Should this replay be in Thurles?

Money from Replay should be invested in game in Connacht. Connacht teams have a lot of problems with finance and emigration and lack investment. Also pay off Cork debt on P.U.C

Anyone who was at the game today should be allowed turn up at the styles for replay and pay a fiver for the ticket,that will bring in enough to cover GAA expenses for the day!

Stupid thread. Over 80% is ploughed into way or the other in the game. Give it a rest. We have to knock the GAA over everything!

84,000 people, atmosphere electric, edge of the seat entertainment and two teams literally using every last bit of energy. The GAA get a lot of stick but imagine if the All Ireland final product was under the control of the IRFU, FAI, UEFA or FIFA. Tickets would cost upwards of €400 - yes it's amateur and I get that argument but for what the All Ireland final produces I think the value is spot on. I like your suggestion of giving money to clubs but I suspect a certain overspend in Munster will get some of the extra revenue :)

The GAA must be so happy. The final yearly figures will be very impressive after this replay. 4 full houses to finish off the year.

You would have to be from Dublin to say that . One to two couches in-every club. They say it's all about numbers. Some counties only have 4 but Dublin have been spoiled by having 40 +. But the GAA head man see it's all about money. Shame on them

Why Pairc UI Caoimh. Is it close to any hurling counties except Cork, Limerick and Waterford? It also has a smaller capacity than Limerick and Thurles.

Nonsense saying if it was IRFU, FAI, etc that tickets would be €400. Thats just petty point scoring and plainly untrue

Agree 100%. The GAA provides great value for money compared to all other major sports. Anyone who is genuinely interested in where the revenue goes can easily check the organisation's annual financial report:

The begrudgers will of course continue spreading their conspiracy theories and slinging false allegations.

Sorry you are not making any sense, we are talking about a Dublin/Kerry team generating millions and you are there spending the receipts on yourselves you are away with the fairies.

It's plainly untrue to suggest other sports are not well over priced compared to what the GAA offer. Just have a look at the prices for a single 6 nations game in Dublin or the price of a EURO 2020 ticket for a basic group game in Dublin next summer. 80% of those tickets are eye watering and these are only matches taking place early in tournaments. All Ireland final's are the biggest games in the GAA calender and yet they are still cheaper than some matches taking place in the early rounds of other sporting competitions. The facts are there to see - and if these other sporting bodies had control over an All Ireland final with the supply and demand you'd be guaranteed you wouldn't see any change out a few hundred euro.

Where's the section on what county coaches are paid and what tax they pay in that money? Do you think all GAA income is declared? Where are the efforts being made to get more people going to games in stadiums with plenty of empty seats? What efforts are the GAA making to improve football standards in proposed lower tier counties?
Is it begrudgery if you don't think all is well with the GAA and that decisions are being made by Croke Park suits with little or no clue where the grassroots are much less what goes on there?

Here we go again, the Grab All Association trolls. Only in the GAA are replays seen as a conspiracy for the GAA to make some extra dosh (which btw goes back to into the grassroots unlike the lower leagues in professional soccer - see Bury). Is this the only thing you can come up with on a spectactular day for the GAA? Seriously? And while you are stewing on that you might also tell us all in what other sport are Final replay ticket costs significantly reduced.

The overall standard of Gaelic football is higher today than it has ever been. If you don't believe me, please watch some all-Ireland finals from the 60s and 70s - it is not hard to find them online - and try not to laugh at the absolutely dreadful standard of shooting and passing (if you could even call it passing) from those so-called glory days. Yes, I actually do believe that the bulk of GAA revenue is pumped back into clubs all over the country. If you think that there is some skullduggery happening at the upper echelons, then there is nothing stopping you from volunteering with your local club and working your way up to the top, the same way as any other GAA official who has ever served. I wish you well in your crusade.

That's a fair point, I think if the GAA charged €100 for finals they'd have no problem selling them out. But at least let some of that money go in a larger proportion to development in so called weaker counties.

Thought for the day? If JP McManus had given that 100,000€ he dished out to every county board directly to the GAA, they could have spent it per capita, as they do. Small wonder the Indo on Saturday was full of claptrap about the middle classes falling in love with the GAA. Nobody loves a bargain more than the middle class.

They must have listened:

www.gaa.ie/tickets/all_ireland_football_replay_news

Following numerous queries regarding the allocation of tickets the GAA can confirm that anyone who was there yesterday will be allowed to turn up at the turnstiles for the replay game and pay a Fiver to get in. Furthermore, we have taken the additional steps to make the day as pleasurable as possible for those who were privileged enough to get a ticket for the drawn game:

- Free travel where possible and where not the loan of a donkey for the weekend to make the journey.
- Meals should be provided before and after the game
- If there are people who are unable to attend due to prior engagements they shall be given a mobile phone with either
free Sky Sports/GAA Go access for the day.
- Anyone who attended yesterday and was due to work Saturday week shall get a note from the GAA to excuse them -
from said duties as well as compensation for the loss of earnings for that day.
- There will also be provision made for all those who lost/misplaced/binned their stubs as it will be taken on good will
that anyone who comes up to the turnstiles and lets the tellers know they were there must have been there and will
be allowed to pass.

A certain number of seats have also been made available and will be given out on a first come first serve basis - providing you have a signed note from your Parish Priest with an acceptable reason as to why you didn't attend yesterday.
