Tickets going on sale for next Saturday's mouthwatering All-Ireland semi-final replay between Dublin and Mayo have been snapped up.

The drawn game was sold-out well in advance of yesterday's thrilling draw at GAA headquarters and the throng for tickets to the replay is expected to be extremely high.

The GAA released an initial tranche of 10,00 tickets for public sale yesterday evening but they were sold in a number of minutes and the association has announced that another batch would be released at 11am this morning.

These tickets are now gone according to tickets.ie and there are lengthy queues at the Croke Park ticket office on Dorset Street where fans are desperately trying to be in the attendance for Saturday's showdown.

Stand tickets for the encounter will be priced at €30, Hill 16 tickets at €20 and it's €5 for under-16s.

The ticket section of the GAA website crashed today with the weight of the demand.

Last year's All-Ireland semi-final replay between Kerry and Mayo was controversially moved to the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick as it clashed with an American Footbal game at Croker but thankfully there is no clash this time round.

It has been confirmed that the Ladies Gaelic Football Association has had a request to play the All-Ireland semi-final between Dublin and Armagh before the replay next Saturday turned down.
