Following a few years of declining attendances, it is good to be able to report an increase in attendances at county championship games so far this year.
The county senior hurling championship attracts the largest attendances and has been very well supported to date.
There are now 10 teams left in the SHC and while Drom and Inch are deserving favourites, the other 9 teams will all feel they have a chance of lifting the Dan Breen Cup on October 13 next.
Attending county championship games offers an ideal good value opportunity for families to support their local clubs as all under 16s attend for free. Local community support is always a big boost to a club when it plays important knock-out games so we would encourage everybody to support their local club for the rest of the season irrespective of the grade or code of the championship.
