If you go to gaa.ie the official GAA website they will have list of any fixtures that will be played in Croke Park, but as this is quite close to the end of the GAA Championship (both Hurling and Football) tickets will be at a premium and will go on sale first to the counties involved in the matches, however there would be apossibility of getting a ticket outside the ground and if you WERE to get to see a match at this stage of the competition you can be ensured a fantastic spectacle!

Try googling the Eirocm League as well, as they might have games on during the summer too.

Yes there is the All-Ireland Gaelic Football semi final at Croke Park. This is a pretty big event and definitely worth going to.

The football and hurling championships are ongoing at the moment. Tickets will most likely be available on


It is not known yet who will be contesting the fixture but if the Dublin team is in the semi-final there will be a high demand for tickets and a guaranteed sellout so get them early. The previous rounds will be on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of August so you should check back here then for more information.

www.gaa.ie is the official website
