2019 Attendances

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


56,000 at the 4 hurling matches was decent. Tyrone v Derry was good too considering Derry were Div 4.

Can anyone fill in the blanks?

Here are the official crowds I found -

Limerick Cork 31,274
Tipp Waterford 22,833
Carlow Kilkeny 7,050
Dublin Wexford ??


Down Armagh 15,112
Cavan Monaghan 13,496
Sligo Galway 5,365

Thought Limerickv Cork would sell out to be honest 31k is small there was close to 35k at the fixture in Cork last year and so much has happened to since ...

Cork - Munster champs, Limerick AI and League champs. 2 cracking championship draws last year, Cork probably should have seen out last years semi final. Serious rivalry.

I'd imagine Cork's tame defeat to Tipp probably hit the travelling support. Though Limerick would nearly fill the Gaelic Grounds on their own though. First home championship game for the champs.

So there was about 106k at the matches over the weekend not bad.

Hurling
Galway Wexford 12,624

You'd nearly expect 20k at this, Galway, champions 2 years ago, runners up last year, decades without home championship games until the last year. Only other home game this year was Carlow which wasn't the most attractive fixture. Wexford support seems to have dropped well off too. Pity given that this is a year they have a real shot a winning a leinster title.

Mayo Roscommon 20,471
Dubs Louth / Meath Carlow 14,380
Fermanagh Donegal 10,447
Laois Westmeath / Kildare Longford 9,375
Antrim Tyrone 5,409

Thought Mayo and the Rossies would draw more of a crowd given Mayo pull in 10k for every league game. What a match though. Well done the Roscommon.

The crowd at the Galway Wexford match was very good considering the Wexford support didn't travel. Dont blame the Wexford support for staying at home....it's a long journey and a 4pm throw in meant many of them would be lucky to get home by 11pm considering there would be no point getting on the road until about 7pm in order to let the traffic congestion clear a bit. And accommodation in Galway city on a Saturday night is neither cheap nor in plentiful supply between May and September.

It is some drive to Galway from Wexford, look at a map. And getting to Galway is half the battle, getting to the ground is the other half.
There was a good Wexford crowd there by the way.
I said it on the Wexford board, Wexford and Galway should agree to play in Portlaoise every year.

Shocking attendance in portlaoise. But we all know why. Time for the GAA to invest massively in underage for all counties across leinster. They need to start addressing the imbalance they created. Attendances will then naturally rise.

There was more at a Connacht 1st round game between two of the least populated counties in the country , Roscommon and Leitrim , than the combined total of the two Munster semi-finals. Munster football looks like a basket case from all sorts of angles.

I was in Cusack Park, Ennis on Saturday night. The second half of the Champions League was always kicking off at 9pm. If Ennis had floodlights, 8pm throw-in would have been fine as well.

26,500 at Cork v Waterford. That's a fantastic turnout. The Deise haven't won a championship match in 2 years and with nothing to play for a tiny crowd travelled. That makes corks turnout all the better. There were years when a knockout munster quarter or semi final would attract less then that.

Limerick v Clare
Limerick v Tipp
Clare v Cork

The last 3 fixtures should all have decent attendances. The munster hurling is in a good place.

Limerick vs Clare 30k
Kilkenny v Galway 16k
Dublin v Kildare & Meath v Laois 36k
Cavan v Armagh 21k
Donegal v Tyrone 13k


I can see Tipp vs Limerick having 30k and Clare v Cork 18k. Some going from Munster. I know there are more matches but I wonder how the total leinster for hurling attendance will compare to football? Are we now a hurling province?
