Should be free into hurling games with a bucket at the gate for donations. Think of the amount of games held in Dog track in Arklow, if the Co Board advertised free entrance I would bet a big crowd would show up. They are supposed to be developing the game but charging €10 into a Billy Byrne cup final (Senior B) is a disgrace.

I will pay €10 into O'Toole park on Sun to see double header of Dub A semi finals to see Boden, Crokes, Lucan & Crumlin or pay €10 into Arklow or Aughrim!!

With €5million coming in from sponsors it is easy enough to keep priced down . I Know county board need to get in the cash and think €5.00 is enough

Don't see how sponsorship has anything to do with this. It is about developing games and increasing interest. By Wicklow co board charging €10 into hurling match they might make €200 off the 20 or so who turn up but turn away so many.

Charging punters into any Wicklow match will never clear the debt. I'd rather see a couple of hundred people at a match and maybe collect €200 rather than charge 30 people to make €300

Was in Aughrim today for the Intermediate Coolkenno v Ballymanus replay, €10 to get in, I argued the reasoning behind this to be met with 'well that's what the price is set at' The person in front of me handed in a €20 note and got back €15 which I also mentioned and I know for a fact other supporter's paid €5 in. Now don't get me wrong, I don't mind paying the €10 when everyone else is doing the same but this is disgraceful.... Then again it's Wicklow for ya!!!

Well I am not sure if you are agreeing or disagreeing with me there. Perhaps you might elaborate.
