Tell me this how much does Antrim gaa get from the game being broadcast live on Sunday?

I'd assume they will clearly get more than giving it away for free on Facebook! but at the same time if they did PPV on a stream this weekend is that less than what TG4 will be giving them?

I see Tyrone gaa think they will make more streaming their final live than moving it to a sat night so RTE cameras can show it
hurl like f**k boi!

The talk in Tyrone was they received £15k from RTE for the double header on Saturday.. Don't know whether or not to believe that? Seems like a lot and but don't know much about it.

But when you think about it, they were streaming games for £5 meaning 3000 people would have to buy for them to get £15k

You would assume they were paying Jerome Quinn so losing money. That being said I still would say it's worth it for promotion of the games though obviously if money can be made all the better!

Also to be fair to TG4 their coverage is excellent and they were the shining light for clubs when RTE or streaming services weren't.

TG4 deserve to pick which ever game they want and this should not be about money, they have been around every county and countless club venues to promote our games, they deserve our support first.

Hopefully Paul Shiels will be fit on Sunday. Always a pleasure to watch the man hurl and with the game on TG4 it good to have all the best players available for both sides

Dunloy by 4. Saw on twitter Dunlop’s ticket raffle . Sad the way so many from Dunloy and loughgiel won’t get to it but at least it’s on tv.

Is shiels available? May have a big bearing on it.

Brilliant win for our minors today. Nice to see them defend their title.

Ballycastle have some nice hurlers too but their mentors / supporters behaviour towards the end was a disgrace.

Fantastic result for Tir an Og ... can’t believe that’s their first ever win at that level... watched it on fb and the commentary was spot on from two biased’ish clubmem

Ref’d them start of year and in championship thought they’d give it a rattle
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Congratulations to Tir Na Og, didn't expect them to do it. Fair play to all involved

As for the minor match today Congratulations to Loughgiel, comfortably the better side
The full back, McCluskey? was excellent and Endas two young boys are fine hurlers as is young Jack McCloskey. Loughgiel always carried a goal threat and made it count.

As for the row at the finish, if you are going to tell a yarn tell a full yarn. No spectators were involved but almost every player and all of both benches were involved including a Loughgiel senior hurler who is very lucky to be lining out tomorrow. Hitting juvenile players is not a good look, especially when you end up put on your arse.

Seems to be one common thread in any trouble that there has been in the county over past ten (or maybe more) years.....answers on a post card
