Donegal’s ticket allocation for Sunday week’s double All-Ireland Football finals is a disappointing 16,008.

Of the total allocation, 13,518 tickets are what will be distributed among the county’s 40 clubs.

The balance of 2,570 will be divided among players (minor and senior) officials, the county’s various sub-committees and sponsors. The figures were revealed by Donegal chairman, Sean Dunnion, at Monday night’s Donegal County Board meeting.

The chairman said the allocation was disappointing considering Donegal had two teams in the finals. He also confirmed that Croke Park had told them there would be no further allocation and that was it.

Meanwhile, Laois man, Eddie Kinsella, has been appointed to referee the Donegal versus Kerry senior final. Fergal Kelly from Longford will take charge of the Donegal versus Kerry minor final.
