Replying To Breffni40:  "Yeah I once paid to attend an Irish rugby match and not only did I get a seat, they gave me a free glossy piece of paper. A lovely touch, the grab all association could learn a thing or two from them! #classy"
I like the idea of a supporters club t & c apply I'm sure, and like all walks in life there's no guarantee of a "free lunch" as they say.

There's no supporters club in Galway that I'm aware of. There used to be a hurling supporters club one time, maybe 30 years ago, but it seemed to peter out when the hurling and football boards amalgamated.
A supporters bus usually travels to all away hurling and football games alright. It's advertised on social media the week of an away match, but as far as I know it's first come first served, you pay the bus fare and that's it. There's no formal supporters club that I know of although when Galway reach an All Ireland final a " Dublin branch of Galway GAA supporters" suddenly seems to materialise out of nowhere in the week of the final to do a fundraiser for the training fund.
