Are you sure? As far as I know, GAA attendances this year are well up. Draw yesterday won't hinder that either.
There were a number of articles earlier this summer about how average attendances were poor, Dubs crowds very poor in Leinster, and the trend has been this way a while

Football Championship so far : 396151

There will probably be another >220000 added to that once its all done (barring replays)
So Approx 620000 people will have attended the 2017 football championship.
Looks healthy enough to me.

2017 Hurling Championship: >449543 (this does not include attendances at the 6 preliminary round matches in the leinster championship or the Laois v Wexford game or the Laois V Carlow game). There will be 80000 added to this after the final so the total will come to approx 530,000.


Total Championship: 1,150,000

That looks like a healthy attedance
Double headers.... Try again and do it right.

Last year was down on other years but this year has picked up a lot , especially the latter stages of the championship which have been very well attended. I think this year will be one of the best for a long number of years.

Why would I weep, I am in that picture? The grownups are talking. If you want to join in, behave.

Why are YOU interested in attendance at GAA matches? You are a Jackeen supporter of soccer and an enemy of the GAA.

But what did you not factor in? Have a think.
An internet troll?

I also didn't count the football quarter final double headers

Galway V Kerry
Roscommon V Mayo

Dublin V Monaghan
Tyrone V Armagh

Both of which have a combined attendance of approx 150,000

I really hope someone makes the asinine argument that it isn't 1.15m separate individuals.

That would really expose them to being a complete halfwit.
