Newbridge It Is As Kildare Stance Rewarded By Croke Park Backpeddle


The G-A-A have confirmed that the capacity for Kildare’s third round football qualifier with Mayo will remain at 8-thousand 2-hundred.

Both county committees are to received 15-hundred tickets each to distribute to their clubs, with the remainder used to accomodate season ticket holders.

Mayo had earlier sought assurances that their 3-and-a-half thousand season ticket holders could all still be accomodated on Saturday.

The move out of Croke Park marks a significant victory for the Kildare County Board after making it clear they would not play at Croke Park.

Today’s chain of events has also seen Cavan’s qualifier with Tyrone moved to Brewster Park in Enniskillen.

Tickets originally bought for the Croke Park double-header are no longer valid, and refunds can be sought at point of purchase.
