To the Scots, more so than ourselves.

We'll have a fair wedge travel but it won't be near what was in Parkhead that time.
Sorry that's what I meant in regards to getting home end tickets. Our away support is very average at best and appalling compared to what the Scots bring on their travels.
Our last aways where away fans were permitted.
Luxembourg 1200
Baku 200
Geneva 3000
Tbilisi 300
Copenhagen (not sure but wasnt over subscribed) maybe 3000

Not That I disagree with your general point but there was more than 300 in Tbilisi wasn’t there?
Yer close to five hundred i would have said

Scots only have us 5% the last time wasn't it? 
If it is 10% of hampden that maybe that might be enough? 

Will also depend on how both teams fair out

They've only to give us 5% and if they're off to the world cup in November there's not a hope of them giving us 10%

The new ticketing system though will ensure that the allocation is done fairly though amongst Ireland fans unlike the previous trip to Scotland.

I know a fella who was in a restaurant with about 10 lads from his job a few months before the the last Scotland game. Delaney was in the same restaurant and one of the lads went up and asked him for tickets for the game in Celtic Park. JD gave yer man his email and sorted them all out with tickets. A few of them had never been at an Ireland game home or away and none of them were season ticket holders.

We ended up two sections over from the away section behind the goals with a row of rangers supporters in front of us. Great craic so it was.

Scotland away turned into a disaster for me last time. Was one of the many with great away records that got that Friday email telling me I was unsuccessful. 

Four of us regular travellers then bought tickets in the exec area at hampden on my card, and then I ended up with a further four from the FAI once we had all complained. As I didn't need the four exec tickets, I organised them to be sold for charity and they want for £200 each, nice £800 for charity.

I had eight tickets on me day of the game, and was driving up from Cheshire as was working there. Motorway got completely blocked from an oil spill and I moved 4 mile in 5 hours. Problem here is it meant not only did I have to refund the lads who had paid me for the fai tickets,  I also had to refund the £800 to the people who had donated to charity, as they weren't going to receive their tickets.

Managed to get off the motorway just in time to watch in a boozer as we lost, and nearly a grand out of pocket.

Moral of the story - Don't do anything for charity.

Met plenty of fellas at that Scotland game who had no interest in football nevermind Ireland and said it was there first ever time going to a match.

Got home end tickets two blocks away from our corner, a group of Hearts fans made it as uncomfortable as possible for us. With that and being refused entry to two pubs in the city centre it was my least enjoyable away trip, but plan to head over again hopefully .

This is now on Sat 24th Sept, moved from 23rd. The days delay seems to have gone under the radar, not highlighted in any article I've seen

ffs

My too - flying home with Ryanair on the Sat. I am absolutely sick of this nonsense.

It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.
