I have applied for tickets through the overseas ballot and for each of my three sons. I received an automatic reply email saying that application will be considered when tickets go on sale. I am not sure how we will be categorised. We get over to games once or twice a season, and I hope that does not disqualify us, as the criteria for application seems to be that you cannot have any ticket purchase history since 2014. (can't figure that out). I have flights and accommodation booked and paid for (I was careless when booking accommodation and inadvertently omitted to click the option which allows you to cancel). Anyway, if I don't succeed in getting my boys match tickets, I am out of the running for father of the year for the foreseeable future. I think we are Category C for cup final tickets, so there is a glimmer of hope. I haven't told them yet that there is a chance we will not get them. It is similar to the scramble for All Ireland final tickets. The club have been hugely helpful to me in the past when seeking tickets with Dave Messenger particularly supportive. (if you are reading this Dave, you are the greatest Supporter Liaison & Disability Access Officer ever) In fairness, I would say that his head is completely wrecked with the current barrage of requests. Does anyone know how much the premium tickets are likely to cost? I would consider this option, if it is available and if the necessary top-mortgage on the house is not excessive!
