    Their biggest problem is competing against the "full-time" setups on offer at Sligo Rovers & Derry City in their area, being more attractive for players and youngsters showing potential!

    You have got to Love Ollie Horgan, great character and a soccer legend!
    Met him at our cup game v UCD , a gentleman and a credit to Harps.

    There is definitely more of a link and affinity between Strabane and Derry than there is Strabane and Ballybofey.

Anyway the point being there is significant urban populations in the area of which BY/SR is the centre for FH to draw from. I know there were some pushing for a move to LK rather than SR for the new ground but the counter argument was that it would have a negative on crowds from other towns all of who might not be that fond of LK.
    Where did you get the idea that Strabane is GAA country ? Maybe in Tyrone overall, but football is stronger in Strabane.

    The fact you have to ask this shows that you don't understand the areas concerned as well as you seem to think you do

    258,000 was the population of County Galway (including the city) at last census. You could make the argument that parts of the county eg Clifden, Woodford, Portumna, are so far away from Eamonn Deacy Park that they are outside the catchment area of Galway United. Conversely, areas of North Clare and South Mayo are not as far from Galway city, 250,000 could be estimated as the population of the catchment area of the club.

    1,673,000 overseas visitors came to Galway in 2017; a further target market for potential supporters. Even getting 1% of these people to attend a football game would result an increase of over 1,000 supporters per home match for the club. Galway United are seriously underachieving when it comes to a support base; should be attracting an average 2,000 people per match regardless of division or form.

    Learn to read you don't understand the English language quite as well as you think you do, punctuation is significant to meaning, I said the Donegal/Lahey area was GAA country and I offer as proof of this that Donegal has its victory parades there despite the money grubbing attentions of Letterkenny COC, where as you are pullings opinions out of your asre just to contradict mine it seems.

    The football tourists (or tourists taking in a football match) should be a market worth chasing given the tourist numbers in Galway. we regularly have groups at games at Dalymount and it is something that has been encouraged by advertising matches around the city (temple bar etc). they also tend to spend a few bob in the shop/bars.
    I understand shams have also seen decent numbers of tourists visiting games in the SDCC stadium. Not sure if its as big a thing with other clubs.


    Definately something we will be developing if we ever get to Dalymount Nua, as there would be great potential (especially with a football museum included in the proposal) to attract tourists.

    We get quite a lot of Tourists as well, i think people come to Dublin and decide to go to a match (much like i would when abroad).
    Depends where they are staying after that and who is at home.
    4 Dublin teams in the premier next year so visitors should have plenty of choice.
    Will be interesting when Bohs move to Tolka does it impact on tourist numbers , my guess would be no as it will still be convenient for people staying in town.

    I suspect it will have a negative impact as the 'home of Irish football' thing is a selling point for Dalymount. also depends on the atmosphere generated at Tolka as we have had a lot o 'word of mouth' positive feedback on Dalymount visits.

    i honestly doubt many tourists to Ireland know anything about "the home of Irish football" or those coming to Tallaght know we are "Ireland's most successful football club" id say most just go to see a game while they are in town.
    If the number drops off while you are in Tolka i guess you will be shown to be right.
    The museum assuming it happens will increase the attraction big time and may deliver more in the long run who decide to visit the museum and stay for a match.

    As ever its promoting it, whether that be 'most successful club' or 'Home of Irish football', to be fair both clubs have put flyers up around town etc and there is no doubt have gained some visitors for it. there is undoubtedly a market for it and letting tourists know there is a match on is generally a good place to start !

    The idea of a museum in the new Dalymount is a good one and hopefully will attract people to the stadium hat otherwise might not visit.With decent facilities, bar, restaurant etc and LUAS stopping close by we should hopefully be able to keep them there to enjoy the match (on derby nights they can have their picture taken with the POU ).

    If it is and if there is any promotion activity for the league at all, it led to a whole increase of 1 additional person on average that went to premier games - its a nice low base for any new league admin to start from!

    It's not. I had trouble getting a few attendance figures for the final round and also the Dundalk v Waterford game listed above.

    I'll post up a final figure today with what estimates I have in their place.

    Considering UCD drag down the league average, then the average across the other clubs has definitely gone up.

    Any hope of a 2019 median figure too, please?
