The ladies football final at Croke Park has finally breached the 50,000 mark.
The feat was proudly announced by Ladies Football on Twitter, with today’s attendance of the Dublin vs Cork game coming in at 50,141 – almost four thousand more than the 46,286 that witnessed last year’s final between the Dubs and Mayo.
We have a new record!!! ⭐️ We’ve topped last year and passed through the 50,000 mark!! ?
Thanks so much for all of your support! ??

It even outstrips the attendance seen in the Tyrone vs Monaghan semi-final in the men’s equivalent this year.
The figure is almost double that of the 27,374-strong crowd present in the 2014 final between the same counties.
While Cork prevailed on that occasion, it was Dublin who ran out winners today, retaining the Brendan Martin Cup in the process with a 3-11 to 1-12 win.
Is iad @dublinladiesg na seaimpíní arís! Thug Sinéad Aherne oráid iontach ag deireadh an cluiche
