CUSACK PARK’s capacity is to be increased following an inspection this week.

There is huge demand for tickets for the first round of the Munster senior hurling championship next weekend in Ennis as Clare welcome Limerick to Cusack Park.

As first reported by The Clare Echo this week, officials in Clare GAA informed delegates at the April meeting of the County Board that they were to undertake an inspection to determine if the capacity of 18,000 could be increased to allow for a greater amount of supporters to attend the game at Cusack Park.

Chairman of Clare GAA, Kieran Keating has confirmed to The Clare Echo that this inspection has resulted in an increase to a capacity of 20,100.

Subsequently, clubs are to receive an extra allocation with a predicted 700-800 to be distributed among Clare’s clubs this weekend.

An independent engineer completed the assessment before reporting their recommendations to the GAA authorities in Croke Park who advised Munster GAA of the decision and they relayed the message to Clare GAA.

Tickets are proving hard to come by for many supporters in both counties with clubs including St Joseph’s Doora/Barefield and Newmarket-on-Fergus GAA running fundraising draws which will include giving away tickets to the first round tie.

The Clare Echo will have a championship supplement in this week’s newspaper ahead of the start of the Munster SHC and SFC. To advertise your business and brand in the county’s most read newspaper, contact sales@clareecho.ie now!!!
