Done Deal have agreed to take down posts selling GAA tickets.
DoneDeal.ie have agreed to not allow posts advertising tickets to each of the remaining fixtures in this years Championships be placed on their website.
After it emerged that thousands of supporters missed out on tickets for this weekends replay between Dublin and Mayo due to technical difficulties on tickets.ie, advertisements began appearing on Done Deal offering supporters the opportunity to go to the game at inflated prices.
Fans from both counties criticised the classifieds website, but little was expected to materialise. Indeed the GAA had been in contact with Done Deal with regard to touts for some time, but to no avail.

However this morning Done Deal announced that it was removing all adds selling match tickets. It would seem from the nature of their Tweet they took on board the criticism of supporters.
@allthingsmayo Hi, we have reviewed ads, consulted with the GAA & decided not to allow the resale of All Ireland final & semi final tickets.
