they've opened it before alan, and it was a godsend for me for example. I had the PP every year from 2001 to 2012 then because of the recession and coming to an arrangement with the mortgage company I just couldnt afford it in April - but I could in August/Sep because I wouldnt have as much to spend in the summer with lower heating costs, no school lunches and so on. So i was able to get the re-issuses in 2013 and last year. I didnt mind spending the extra because it goes to the county board. As i refuse to be scalped its more than a certainly that I wont get in this year and that'll be the first final i'll have missed since i started going in 1980.
I have no doubts that on the day if I am hanging about near CP there will be oportuinuity but firstly how do I know it is a real ticket, and secondly since Mayo think this is the promised land i can just see my offer of face value being sneered at as a lad pumps up a ton for a hill ticket.
There are various shades of unfairness.
