Dublin GAA clubs to discover how many final tickets they get today
GAA clubs around Dublin will find out today how many tickets they have been allocated.
Hundreds of eager fans have already signed up to be considered for tickets.
Each club will have its own means of distributing - either by random draw or based on previous purchases.
In St Vincents GAA club in Marino, more than 300 fans are hoping to have their name picked out of a draw.
"It's a bit of a loaves and fishes situation but we will do our best," Peter Smith, PRO for St Vincents, said.
Meanwhile Noel Sheridan, general manager of Ballyboden St Enda's GAA club, said that he expects at least 450 people to be looking for tickets.
Several clubs who spoke to the Herald are expecting their allocation to be enough to satisfy only one-third of the demand.
The county board said allocations are based on the number of affiliated teams a club has.
Officials from clubs can pick up their tickets today but a county board rep was not available to reveal the number of tickets being sold this way.
