    Has RTE ever broadcast a cricket match ?
    The Irish team,like their rugby counterparts,is picked from north and south.

          earlier this year (May?), ireland’s test series v pakistan was on RTE. and a little after that (june or july), ireland’s t20 matches v india were also on RTE

            hardly a fair comparison given how bloody long a cricket match can last, they’d have to give over the full days schedule to it.

            T20 matches last about 3 hours.
            Perhaps the 70 minutes for GAA is the limit of the Paddy attention span ?

            It doesn’t need to be.
            Cricket is the second most popular sport in the world.
            GAA is followed by a few thick boggers in comparison.

        Incorrect absolutely. I had the pleasure of watching the donegal mayo final up in donegal and the match was on bbc.

            The standard of hurling in Ulster is shocking low; maybe the Beeb didn’t want to show it for aesthetic reasons.

    I’d like to think they haven’t for some normal reason rather than the alternative reality Northern Ireland reason.
