is there no chance we could ever look at getting the games streamed live for the likes of a final? Armagh TV are years ahead of everyone and its brilliant to use to watch a game.

this is totally non SW, lenny etc related so it may cause confusion lol


Does it involve the county board spending money?  Then no
Does it involve some forward thinking by the county board?  Then no
Does it involve a strategy, willing volunteers, a process of works to highlight the countys presence?  Then no
Does it involve taking away from the potential gate receipts at a county final?  Then no

It could be a money maker. Pastie Quinn from C'Dall streamed the Semi & Final live on FB and charged a donation in return for doing so, he was doing the half marathon for Marie Curie so he used his go fund me page to collect money. Great idea.  £5 per game or say a £40 one off season ticket and sure your laughing.

The highlights over the last few seasons have superb and the work of the PRO and his volunteers should be built upon. Same as the Saffron Gael, superb idea by Curly and Paddy.

Credit wheres its due our PRO has vastly improved the service since his introduction.  I've no qualms in saying he was one of SVs more inspired moves.  Perhaps himself and Pastie could team up somehow?

From reading Pasties posts on FB he only that on thsoe 2 occasions.

Surely Justin  McCormick, Jamie Quinn and Joe Dyrample could work with the PRO along with tech gurus we have involved with the county or clubs. Its an unexplored venture.

The current PRO is not aligned to SV, he beat the SV candidate.

He should be helped, not hindered !!

Says it all really. 

Sounds like there is potential in it and current gaels who are experimenting with it. Surely Antrim Boards larger profile could help make it happen.

Best PRO we have had but seems some on the Board would not be seen to agree with such  ;) ;)

Our PRO has been brilliant this year with his promotion of our games at all levels. Ive worked with him a fair bit this season and everything any thing we have needed help with he has been on it.

I know they had wanted to stream the U21 hurling final live with the Armagh TV guys but near the time something came up with regards to the guys who run it at home so they couldnt do the match for them.

Not having a county ground to house all the equipment is also a problem!
hurl like f**k boi!

Sean Kelly almost certainly the best PRO in the country. Havent seen or heard anyone who differs with this view.

That's a strange on bannside, I'd certainly like to see who had said otherwise... losing games and minds it seems by some..

If it hadnít of been for the Casement Social Club sponsoring a couple of the games where highlights have been provided, they wouldnt of been done. Th county wouldnít provide the money for some games to be videoed and thatís why a few earlier rounds werenít covered the way they were in 2016.

I definitely think there is merit in doing what Armagh have done and broadcast them live. I know a few mates in San Fran enjoyed watching the games this year.
