Official figure for Limerick v Tipp in thurles was just under 12,000 paid in . Add another 3/4000 juveniles to give circa 15-16000 .
42,000 odd at Dublin V Kerry . Lot of other league matchs on last night , club finals yesterday and even harty cup semi finals . Lot of matchs today as well , hard to credit the amount of people attending GAA matchs and it's only Toward the end of January.

It was brought to my attention that season tickets were not scanned correctly and that i did not attend Omagh on Sunday.

I wonder if this happened on any other grounds and to what Volume of people have been affected by this.

I would say 3,500 to 4,000 in portlaois , Armagh definitely had the majority, but Laois the better team

Monaghan Tyrone 7,500 (breakingnews.ie)
Wexford Clare 6,500 (independent.ie)
Carlow Kilkenny 3,000 (examiner)

Put in the sources as all are rounded figures that have an estimate look about them.

Lots of fine crowds though, shows there is a real appetite for Gaelic Games out there. Gone are the days when league games were played out before a max of a couple of thousand people.

I think the u-16s are "clicked" through are they not? If that's the case there was probably closer to 20K in castlebar sat night

Turn style clicks them through, so they are counted too

Healthy attendances this year again. League of Ireland would kill for those, if only the majority of soccer fans realised sitting year in year out watching teams in another country on the television doesn't make you a fan.

While I like a bit of English soccer, attending league games around the country this time of year is much more fun than staying at home and watching the lads on Sky selling something that just isn't there.

Even compared to the Pro 14 rugby those attendances are massive. The official attendance at Thomond Park for Munster Pro 14 fixtures is always announced at between 11 and 15k but they are counting pre sold season tickets there. To their credit there are about 10k of season tickets sold each year but the majority of those season ticket holders don't seem to show for league games they are signing up to get tickets for the big games. Often there is between 5 and 8k in the ground.

For Limerick to get 14k in the ground for the Galway game is unreal. You often get articles of about falling GAA attendances. I'd say they are way up over all. Certain championship attendances are down but that is often in case where the result is a forgone conclusion.

GAA is much bigger than Rugby despite what the media may say and give extreme coverage too....everyone I know all week was looking forward to heading to Castlebar sat night...I never see that with Connacht rugby (which has made great strides don't get me wrong)...limerick is a big rugby city but outside of it I'd imagine hurling is still king.
