No Axe, I mean the not very aptly named 'Friendly Way' in the Strand itself - not sure if a lot of the folk murdered there would call it that.

I know Cluan Place - sure it's got more peelers at it each Twelfth than are chasing a few folk in Ards at the minute (and that's saying something!!).

Is Friendly Way not in “The Markets”?

I promise you this ends with hundreds not making it into the game in time. Why the frig can’t the tickets just be collected in Belfast so everyone can go to Dublin and enjoy the day as they so wish.

100% agree, 23 min walk from the ground followed by God knows how long in a queue, then 23 mins walk back to the ground is a fair chunk out of limited time in city. 

Tickets for Vienna were picked up in Belfast, no issue. 

 

Any word on what time the tickets can be collected ?

guessing this will be a ticketmaster mobile office, hopefully they have a few windows split into alphabetical order re surnames.

Because not everyone lives in Belfast (or travels to Dublin via Belfast)? I mean, if you're coming from anywhere West of the Bann, or even from parts of Armagh or Down, a pick-up in Belfast is worse than one in Dublin.

And even if the tickets were made available for collection before the day of the game, who from outside the city is going to want to make a separate journey to Belfast just to pick up their ticket?

If a ticket collection is required, then it has to be somewhere in Dublin, the only question being where would be the most convenient location.

They will set it up as a fanzone with an overpriced bar and a Dublin  Pete snodden equivalent playing snow patrol etc with face painters and other family games to show how nice the gawa are nowadays. Then they will bus our supporters in from there and back out again with a police escort and closed roads. (Only joking)

I wonder is that the plan.  Mightn't be the worst idea, I know the fans mixed well at the Euros, but cant see it ending well if both sets of fans congregate in the same bars in Dublin.  I'd imagine the majority of bars won't want any NI fans near them.

Although perhaps they'll be reluctant to play a part in us getting boozed up.

Axe, dear- I was talking about Crusaders and Cliftonville (you know, North Belfast, mid-table). Did you miss that, or just not understand it?

A nice wee 2 hour detour via Ringsend and the Docks to find an industrial unit to collect your tickets. Slap it up yis for going and handing €45 to the FAI :lol:

Got 2 tickets for this last week for 2 of my block bookers, confirmation email and invoice number everything looks dead on. Today I received an email saying I had until 8pm tonight to secure them. Checked my previous email everything looks all well and good went onto ticket website and I can now purchase 2 more tickets with a different invoice number.

Surely there's not a issue with the IFA ticketing again?

That's the final straw for my squad of 10. None of us are taking our ticket allocation for this school day trip. Treated like P4's on an away day, probably the outcome the IFA wanted

It’s only a school day trip if you want it to be.  Collecting tickets away isn’t that unusual if that’s what you are referring to.
