Ahead of Saturday’s All-Ireland quarter-final between Cork and Dublin shown only on Sky Sports…
“Unless we do something about it, we’re going to be stuck in a bigger county scenario where we won’t get to see our local county team playing on RTÉ. It’s beyond belief at this stage. We have had a torrid 18 months, Cork as much as everyone else needs a lift. There is a cohort of older people who are GAA supporters totally disenfranchised by this commercial decision that has left the grassroots reeling.”
Fine Gael senator Tim Lombard.
Down with the free market.
Have you worked out cost per hour for GAA output from RTE’s €160pa vs €75 pm SKY sports Suspect clear winner. When you lob in TG4 which is indirectly funded from license winner all right.
