The GAA have cancelled a number of tickets ahead of next weekend's All-Ireland SFC semi-final between Dublin and Tyrone.
Tickets for the highly anticipated semi-final went on sale at 10am on Wednesday and sold out in less than five minutes. Official ticket prices ranged between €30-€45 for adults, however, on resale markets such as Seatwave and Ticketmaster, tickets were being sold for as much as €189.
In response, the GAA moved to cancel a number of tickets on Thursday and said that they have made contact with resellers to try and remove tickets that are being sold above face value.

“Requests have also been made directly to platforms selling tickets above face value to remove them from sale and the situation continues to be monitored by the GAA’s ticket office.
"Supporters and members are urged not to buy tickets from unofficial sources for above face value as they risk purchasing tickets that may be cancelled.”
