GAA releases ticket details as Croker prepares for Ulster final

The tickets are available from outlets at the rear of the Cusack Stand in Croke Park between 11am and 5pm and from McCaughey’s Shop on Clonliffe Road, the Skylon Hotel on Drumcondra Road and Benny’s shop on Emmet Street.

Tomorrow, tickets will be available from ticket outlets at the following locations: mobile unit at Gills Corner, North Circular Road; mobile unit at Bishop’s Palace, Drumcondra Road; mobile unit at Ballybough (under railway bridge); mobile unit opposite the Red Parrot Pub, Binn’s Bridge, Drumcondra. Adult stand tickets will cost €25 (£17stg) while admission to the terraces will be €15 (£10stg).

Family tickets (adult full price, accompanying child €5 or £3) are also available.

Illegally parked vehicles may be clamped or towed away. Parking is available at Clonliffe College, O’Connell School on North Richmond Road and St Vincent’s School at Finglas Road. There are no OAP or student concessions available.

Elsewhere in Ulster, Jody Gormley has stepped down as Down senior football team trainer following the county’s All-Ireland exit.

The former Tyrone player informed manager Paddy O’Rourke of his decision three weeks after the dismal 1-7 to 0-4 qualifier defeat to Sligo.

O’Rourke’s future will be decided in a vote by the county management and clubs later this month. He was criticised after the Sligo game but he has received the support of county chairman Jerry Quinn.

Meanwhile James Sherry returns to the Fermanagh line-up for today’s All-Ireland football qualifier against Clare at Cusack Park in Ennis.

Sherry starts at midfield in place of Liam McBarron who is ruled out by a knee injury.

The other Fermanagh change from the Ulster semi-final replay defeat by Armagh sees Damien Kelly replacing Shane McDermott at left-half back.

Skipper McDermott is suspended after his dismissal in the defeat by Armagh.

Monaghan team manager Seamus McEnaney has made two changes to the team that overcome Wicklow in the last round for today’s clash with Wexford.

Vincent Corey has recovered from injury and takes his place at left-half back while Eoin Lennon is named at midfield. Donal Morgan and Brendan McKenna revert to the substitutes.

Eoin Duffy who made his debut against Wicklow retains the corner-forward berth.

In the substitutes, Keith Sheerin has opted out of the panel and is replaced by Nicholas Corrigan.

Ex-Laois minor star Colm Begley is a step closer to making his AFL Premiership debut as he was elevated to the Brisbane Lions’ senior list.

First year rookie Begley, who turns 20 next month, has been rewarded for his excellent displays for Brisbane’s feeder club the Suncoast Lions.

He is replacing recently retired All-Australian Justin Leppitsch.

Begley, along with Brendan Quigley, was brought to Australia by Lions football manager Graeme Allan late last year. Homesickness hit Quigley, who lines out for Laois in tomorrow’s All-Ireland qualifier against Tyrone, early on and he has since returned home to Ireland.
