ADMISSION prices to some games in the county have for dropped for the coming season following a unanimous decision at the February County Board meeting.
Games in the league fazes of the Senior Championship will now have an admission charge of €5 for a single game and €8 for a double header, a drop of €1 and €2 respectively.
In the play-offs and semi-finals of the leagues, admission prices have been dropped from €6 to €5 with admission to the final now €7. It was previously €8.
Clara delegate Mick Sheridan proposed that free entry for younger people should be increased from U-14 to U-16 to encourage young people to attend games.
Chairman Pat Teehan said the only reason he disagreed was because he said U-16s claimed to be U-14 and if the age was increased, minors would claim to be U-16. Treasurer Andy Gallagher stated that no U-16s were refused at O’Connor Park. It was agreed to split the difference at U-15.
