TERRACE tickets for Sunday week’s Munster final went on sale this morning and sold out in less than half an hour.
The rematch of last year’s provincial final has sparked huge interest in both Clare and Limerick, particularly after the Banner’s toppling of the All Ireland champions in the round robin phase.
Tickets went on sale via Ticketmaster at 12 noon and were also available in certain retail outlets. They were all gone well before 12.30, much to the frustration of many supporters.
Stand tickets, the majority of the Gaelic Grounds capacity, are set to be allocated to clubs in the coming days. But, with people not having certainty about receiving those, there was overwhelming demand for the tickets on sale today.
Last year’s Munster final saw a similar means of distributing tickets, which also saw many people queuing only to be disappointed.
