The Irish Muslim Council — Comhairle Mhoslamach na hÉireann and the Gaelic Athletic Association are pleased to announce that the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha will be celebrated with the performance of the Eid prayers and a cross-community event in Ireland’s iconic national stadium, Croke Park once again this year.
|Date||9 July 2022|
|Time||08.30-10:00 (gates open 07.45)|
|Venue||Croke Park, Dublin|
Please note there are two types of tickets for this year’s event:
Prayer Tickets are for attendees who wish to pray the Eid prayers and will be seated in the prayer rows on the pitch. Those wishing to pray must bring their own prayer mats to avoid damage to the pitch. These tickets have now sold out. We have released more prayer tickets, but prayer rows for these tickets will be formed in the Davin Stand.
Guest Tickets are for attendees who do not wish to pray the Eid prayers, but merely to join the crowd to observe the Eid prayers and hear the speeches and performances afterwards. Guests will be seated in the lower tier of the Hogan Stand.
Previous year’s events (taking place in 2020 and 2021) have been joyous and inspiring occasions, and this year’s event promises to be the best yet, with the Eid prayers being followed by speeches from invited faith, civil and political leaders, along with performances from spoken word artists, nashid singers and the stars of last year’s programme, the Islamic Centre of Ireland Children’s Choir.
The date for this year’s event has been confirmed as 08:30 (gates open 07:45) on Saturday 9th July 2022 at Croke Park, Dublin.
