Ladies attendance figure pleases McEvoy

August 26, 2019

The official attendance for the first ever All-Ireland ladies football semi-finals at Croke Park.

Dublin's Niamh McEvoy was happy with the turnout for yesterday's All-Ireland ladies football semi-final double-header at Croke Park.

The attendance of 10,886 looked tiny in the 82,300-capacity stadium, but it will still the biggest crowd to watch the All-Ireland ladies football semi-finals by some distance.

“It was a great step forward for the LGFA. They have done great work," the centre forward told the Irish Examiner.

“This was a bit of a trial and if you think about it, there were 10,000 here. That’s 9,000, if not more than was at our semi-final last year.

“Hopefully, as the profile of the game keeps building, you’ll get more and more at the semi-finals. We love playing on the best surface in the country so we love playing in Croke Park.”
