Does anybody know if there is some form of equality legislation governing the media?

Just the BBC.

UTV is commercial, a significant part of its market is in the 26 counties. Many unionist viewers have no problem with, and would even welcome, coverage of GAA games in a balanced manner. So there is no way that a majority of UTV viewers favour the present situation. Pressure should also come by way of advertisers like the Bank of Ireland who might note that there is little mention of GAA games they sponsor.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

As I said before season ticket was the ultimate joke. They didnt show gaelic for weeks and then showed up somewhere in munster for a railway cup semi final to highlight that noone was attending the games. Considering the crowds attending games in ulster that was a joke. Anything to try and portray the games in a negative light.

Sláinte scalder.

Who would the Enniscorthy folk like to see winning the Senior Hurling this weekend? Oulart are justifiably strong favourites, but I wouldn't write Buffer's Alley off completely, especially if they're within an ass's roar in the last quarter.
Carlsberg don't do Gombeenocracies, but by jaysus if they did...

Can’t see past Oulart they’re a class team, not overly impressive in the semi but if they come near to their potential they’ll blow the Alley away. The alley could trouble them but I’m afraid I can only see an Oulart win. I suppose people would in ways like to see  the Alley win, as they are the underdogs and haven’t won in 15 years but in ways it would be good to see Oulart win and go on to have a good rattle at a Leinster title as they are no doubt capable of. Interest levels aren’t huge in the neutral population though!

Im starting to think that someone connected with UTV has been reading this thread. GAA was the main headline again tonight with coverage from the Dunloy game and Railway Cup final. However, whoever was put in charge of the coverage let themselves down. They had coverage of the Derry County Final replay (which they also showed last week) which they thought took place yesterday. Someone must have got a bit confused.

I found this absolutely unbelieveable. Sure the sport's editor has a hand in the running order and content of the sports section. You couldn't make it up.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

I'd say they'll have a field day with this, expect detailed GAA coverage on the BBC tomorrow.

From BBC website, accompanied by a good photo of the brawl ofcourse

Brawl mars victory
Clontibret 1-7 1-8 Crossmaglen
 
Crossmaglen edged a stormy AIB Ulster Club SFC encounter at Clones.
Oisin McConville missed a penalty and Cross then had John Donaldson sent off but JP Mone's own goal helped Cross lead 1-3 to 0-4 at the interval.
Cross moved ahead by four but Vinny Corey's goal gave Clontibret hope and they had a last-ditch '45 to level.
However, they took it short and ref Martin Sludden immediately blow up and following an ugly brawl, Crossmaglen's Cathal Shortt was red carded.
Clontibret clearly were not aware that the '45 was the last kick of the game and while Dessie Mone was clearly fouled after receiving the ball, referee Sludden had already blown the final whistle.
With fists flying in the moments after the game, Sludden required a Garda escort as he made his way to the dressing-rooms.
Crossmaglen made the better start with Oisin McConville and John McEntee hitting the opening two scores.
Two Conor McManus points had Clontibret level by the ninth minute but Cross then won their first penalty.
McConville hit the woodwork with the spot-kick and the former All Star then hit the rebound wide.
With Dessie Mone, JP Mone and Vincent Corey starting to take a grip around the middle, Clontibret then went ahead with Corey notching the score.
Things looked even bleaker for Crossmaglen when Donaldson received his marching orders after he had lashed out at Dessie Mone.
Mone had committed a clumsy foul on John McEntee but Donaldson's over-reaction gave Martin Sludds no option but to produce the red card.
However as so often happens, losing a man seemed to rally the affected team.
The impressive Martin Aherne levelled in the 27th minute and Cross then won their second penalty when McConville was hauled down.
David McKenna took the penalty and while his shot was brilliantly saved by goalkeeper Paul McElroy, the ball rebounded off JP Mone and into the net.
Leading 1-3 to 0-4 at the break, points from McConville and Aherne increased Cross' lead to five early in the second half.
However, Vinny Corey's great goal after his own superb run got Clontibret back into the game.
A Conville score and Tony Kernan's '45 helped Cross move three clear again but Clontibret hit two late scores to leave the minimum between the sides.
Then came the late '45 controversy and the Ulster Council will await Sludden's take on the incidents which followed the final whistle

Well in fairness, it wasn't on the news section. It wasn't even the main article on the sports section.

This will no doubt be tomorrows headlines...


  The referee needing a Garda escort


 The obligitary brawl



Didn't see the BBC News tonight but as expected UTV rowed in with this shite (no pictures)! Yes they mentioned that Cross had won but talked more about the "trouble"; the All Ireland Club Champions were playing but no UTV cameras were there ---- a f><king disgrace. There were plenty of cameras to catch the "excitement" of Saturday's Irish League tho'.
