Lately it seems like the GAA have been looking MLB and NFL and how they run activities on match days, there have been stilt walkers and lifesize furry mascots getting photos taken with kids, music on match day and a chance to get your photo taken with either the Sam Maguire or the Liam McCarthy cups.
Now they are taking this one step further and having an evening of fun and entertainment the night before the All Ireland Football Final, September 17th.
Hector will act as MC on the night, there will be comedy from Neil Delamere and Fred Cooke and music on the night be be provided by Ryan Sheridan, Royseven and The Riptide Movement. The carnival feel will be pushed into overdrive by the latin rhythms of The Cuban Allstars. Tyrone legend Peter Canavan and memory man Jimmy Magee will there too, talking football.
Tickets are limited to 1400 and start at 35 and are available from crokepark.ie and gaa.ie
