I don’t understand the problem. Someone has a ticket to a game, and he wants to sell it. Others want tickets to the game and are freely willing to buy said ticket at a price they offer him and he accepts. The buyer is happy, the seller is happy. This is called capitalism, people, and your failure to grasp the concept of it is what will keep you under the iron thumb of Germany.
if some1 has more money than sense 2 pay that much lets hope the GAA find the bar code and he not get in 2 see the game
Maybe Pauric Duffy should be looking into this matter instead of threatening our county board with whatever punishment (probably a large fine of which will go to Croke Park) for charging 5 euros on each ticket for the training fund !
Bla bla bla …. There are many tickets also being sold via newspapers, donedeal, gumtree and various other websites. There are many people who can afford and are willing to pay these inflated prices. So I personally don’t see the big deal. It’s not just the All Ireland – tickets for concerts etc are always sold on at higher prices. Would people be even bothered about this if Donegal weren’t in the final?? I doubt it.
Good luck to him. In this era of recession, unemployment, and emigration any means of putting bread on the table must be exploited.
there will be touts selling tickets before the game on sunday but wait till the game starts before buying any and these greedy c…. will be giving these tickets away!! play them at their own game!! lets all get on e bay and put in ridiculous offers for these tickets and make sure they don’t sell at these crazy prices!!
Hes getting good money for it, sure why not,everyone is just jealous they cant do the same because they would rather go.If someone can afford to pay the €710 then why not. GAA already ripping fans off with €80 tickets anyway!! Ive seen world famous sports teams play on the world stage for less than £50!
Those tickets are now Euro 1500, and euro 1300 for 2 premier tickets, disgrace
How can the GAA justify cancelling the tickets for people who had to buy them above face value. If the GAA employed a fairer system of distribution, such as providing each finalist county team with a more generous allocation and not distributing the tickets among non-finalist county clubs, reducing the amount of tickets going to corporate agencies and the like and sell the remainder on tickets.ie or ticketmaster for the general public to buy legally and fairly then it might ease the demand. I’m sure if the GAA cancelled the tickets, they would not refund the face value of the ticket to the initial buyer
Calm down now lads, calm down. Take a proper look at the ad here and see that the amount of people bidding have pushed the price up to €710 so far, I’m sure the seller had it listed at a sensible price to start.
Also if you take a look at the seller’s history, you’ll see it’s clearly a mother of a young child. For all we know she might be stuck for a few euro to make ends meet, came into these tickets and is just trying to get some money to support her family. Who are we to judge her for that?
in that case the child and the ticket should be taken of her
The tickets belongs to them therefore they may do as they please with them! Just like every big event in Croke park tickets can reach huge prices!! What about the prices the hotels are charging for room only?? wheres the outcry about that?? Such a fuss!! Freedom of choice!
