3,800 Donegal Galway - played at O'Donnell Park, Letterkenny

Didn't see many any crowds announced this weekend. Looked like they were well down due to the weather and moves to smaller venues.

Thats it in a nutshell, even Dublin Monaghan Saturday night numbers were very low as it was baltic . The GAA have been lucky up to now with the weather but all these games so early in the year is counterproductive.
It'll be the same this weekend with Storm Dennis coming.

I heard Jim Bolger on the radio at the week-end, and he seems to be driving an extraordinary agenda, in his presidential manifesto. He seems to be on a crusade to reduce expenditure by county teams. He didn't expand too much on how this approach might logically drive 'a continuous mediocrity' mission though the counties, or how such an eventuality might ultimately affect attendances.

Was at Croke Park yesterday for the Donegal game.

Does anyone have any idea of the attendance? I thought around 30,000 but what do I know.

Real pity Cork Limerick clashed with the rugby given that they would be 2 of the biggest multi spor fan bases in the country

I thought there might be a few more there. Still a fine crowd for a league game.

Big limerick crowd there, created a good atmosphere despite the stop start nature of the game.

Was thinking the same thing that this game would reach the 15k mark but as correctly mentioned I'd imagine 2 counties with a big rugby fanbase. Limerick's support has really swelled in the last couple of years, I remember we played them in the Gaelic grounds in 2016 and there was only 2 or 3k at it although it was a horrible Saturday evening in February, I even think they got had a home semi final in the league in 2017 and it didn't reach the 10k mark, all there home games the last couple of years have got more than that.
