Tickets for the Munster Senior Hurling final have sold out in just over 24 hours, with the surge of demand causing the system to crash.

The final between Limerick and Tipperary is schedule to take place on Sunday June 30.

Tickets.ie, the ticketing firm employed to handle the ticketing for the event, said it experience a “high volume of traffic” after tickets went on sale at 8am Wednesday.

One fan said he queued for 45 minutes on the site only to be redirected to the back of the queue again.
