Tickets for Pope Francis at Croke Park have sold out

TICKETS to attend mass given by Pope Francis at Croke Park in August are all gone.

The organisers of the first Papal visit since 1979 made the announcement today.

People wanting to get tickets for the Pope's other events in the Phoenix Park and Knock shrine will be able to apply online for them next Monday.

The organisers also revealed that more than one in four of the 34,000 people who have pre-registered to take part in the World Meeting of Families are under 18.

It is understood all tickets for the stadium have been assigned, although some have been set aside for homeless people and refugees.

Over 10,000 people from overseas have indicated their intention to travel for the festival but that number is expected to grow as it gets closer to the date.

Around 45,000 tickets for Knock are expected to be quickly taken on a first-come-first-served basis.

There will be 500,000 tickets for the Phoenix Park, where Pope Francis will celebrate Mass on Sunday, August 26.

People can register for tickets here.
