A massive 900,000 viewers tuned into RTE2 for the All Ireland football final between Cork and Down. The final 10 minutes attracted an audience in excess of 1 million (1.064 million). The only other sports shows to beat this in recent times have been the Ireland France world cup qualifier and the Grand slam decider between Ireland and Wales.
A further 300,000 tuned into the Sunday Game on the Sunday evening. Overall attendances stayed roughly the same as last year-which was not bad given the deep recession.

The hurling final pulled in over 200k more.
