Oh for fuck sake...

The Dublin senator labelled the GAA's issuing of tickets to TDs but not senators as an "unfair practice" according to a report from Niall O'Connor in the Irish Independent.

Ms Noone is the second person to speak out against the GAA's practice with party colleague Michelle Mulherin accusing the GAA of discrimination towards the unelected members of the Oireachtas.

In correspondence with GAA Ard Stiúrthóir Páraic Duffy, Ms Noone said that she had always received tickets for finals in the past and she wanted further explanation from Mr Duffy as to why she wouldn't receive them this year.

She labelled the decision not to supply tickets to senators as "very unfair".

The GAA accepts applications for tickets from TDs who are from counties competing in the All-Ireland Final, which must be purchased at full price.

With demand for this year's All-Ireland Football Final and replay particularly high, the GAA were unable to facilitate their requests as the demand for tickets exceeded the numbers available.
