The All-Ireland football final between Galway and Kerry on Sunday will be shown on a big screen at Galway International Arts Festival’s Big Top.

The event will be ticketed, but free of charge, with further information to be posted to giaf.ie and galwaycity.ie as well as their social media channels.

Galway International Arts Festival (GIAF) and Galway City Council will screen the big match at the iconic venue in Fisheries Field, taking place on the final day of this year’s festival.

It will be the last event at the Big Top this year, after performances from The Stunning, Pixies, Jon Hopkins, The Academic, The Frames and The Flaming Lips as part of GIAF 2022.

Mayor Clodagh Higgins said that it is great to have this event in the iconic Heineken Big Top to celebrate the great achievement of the team, and wished them every success in the final.

“We have already celebrated a great Minor Football Team All-Ireland victory this month, and hopefully the Ladies Camogie team will book their place in the All-Ireland Final when they play on the 23rd of July, and I wish them every success.

“My thanks to Galway City Council and Galway International Arts Festival for making this event happen.”

John Crumlish, CEO of Galway International Arts Festival, said that they are delighted to be working with Galway City Council to make this event happen.

“We have celebrated many great nights in the Heineken Big Top, but a victory for Galway in the All-Ireland final would go down as one of the best ever,” he said.

Tickets are available now and must be reserved in advance from  giaf.ie. Demand for tickets is expected to be high, so tickets are limited to two per person.
