YESTERDAY’S ALL-IRELAND football final between Dublin and Mayo ended in a draw meaning a replay will be played on Saturday 1 October.

It means another scramble for tickets for fans of both sides. Controversy erupted last week when Senator Michelle Mulherin complained about ‘discrimination’ against Senators who, ulike TDs, are not entitled to buy two tickets for the match.

In the case of TDs, deputies are entitled to buy two tickets for the match if the county they represent is involved in the final. But should this be the case?

Today’s poll, Should TDs have access to tickets for All-Ireland finals?


Poll Results:

No, they should be treated the same as everybody (21977)
Yes, they are representing their county (3353)
Don't know/don't care (1163)
