The 'full house' sign is expected to go up outside Croke Park for the first time in three years on Sunday.

As the country continues to emerge from the pandemic, supporters from Armagh, Galway, Kerry and Mayo are set to pack the 82,300-capacity stadium for the second of the All-Ireland SFC quarter-final double-headers. About 35,000 tickets were sold within a few hours of them going on sale last Tuesday and it's believed most of the remaining tickets have since been snapped up.

Saturday's All-Ireland SFC quarter-final double-header, which features Derry v Clare and Dublin v Cork, hasn't attracted the same interest, but should still draw a crowd of over 50,000.
