GAA followers on Twitter have expressed surprise at the number of empty spaces in St. Conleth's Park for this evening's eagerly-anticipated All-Ireland football qualifier between Kildare and Mayo.
One of the terraces was almost empty, despite the CCCC having originally fixed the game for Croke Park based on health and safety concerns about Newbridge.
There are very few people behind one of the goals in Newbridge - Health and Safety my arse!!! #kilvmyo- Seamus Duke (@SeamusDuke) June 30, 2018
Health and safety obviously has its place but hard not to feel the tail is wagging the dog when you see the empty spaces at St Conleth's Park this evening. #GAA- Pat Nolan (@pat_nolan) June 30, 2018
If you didn't get a ticket for Kildare v Mayo and you see one terrace half empty you'd be raging #GAA- Shane Brophy (@BrophShane) June 30, 2018
Newbridge not even sold to capacity? not full behind the goals- Peter O'Leary (@poleary7) June 30, 2018
