Tailteann Cup Bonus: Westmeath or Cavan will receive a €60,000 team trip bonus

Winners of the inaugural Tailteann Cup will receive a grant from the GAA for their holiday fund to be used later in the year.

The “prize” is part of a series of measures the GAA has put in place to help promote and interest the new secondary competition.

Winners of the Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy will typically receive around €80,000 as a contribution to the holiday fund – and the Tailteann bursary is expected to be in the region of €60,000, although that hasn’t been officially passed on to the counties yet.

Cavan and Westmeath play the first final at Croke Park tomorrow at 3pm, a prelude to the first All-Ireland semi-final between Derry and Galway.

And interest in the Tailteann Cup in both participating countries has led to expectations that tomorrow’s double-header will see over 70,000 participants in attendance. By the close of business yesterday, around 62,000 tickets had been sold.

For comparison, the last All Ireland semi-final without Dublin, when full attendances were allowed pre-Covid, saw just over 33,000 spectators in 2019 to see Kerry and Tyrone.

Dublin and Kerry in Sunday’s second semi-final will also be well above the 70,000 mark, although it is not clear if this will sell out as well as other semi-finals between these great rivals did in 2013 when 81,553 were in attendance 2016

Dublin’s Con O’Callaghan and James McCarthy remain injured after missing out on the quarter-final win over Cork.

The nature of the recovery period for her injuries has not been detailed by Dublin management but it appears O’Callaghan has a leg injury and McCarthy is nursing a hamstring injury.

Dublin manager Dessie Farrell has conceded both players were in a race against time, but there is now growing optimism that they can both play a part.
