Unfortunately not.

Good deal with EIR if you have your mobile with them, get internet/TV then cheapish for first 6 months, EIR Sport and BT come with package, you can add Sky.

SKY Now TV is good for me as I only wait till the summer to get it in for Champo, then cancel it at no cost, usually a few deals floating throughout the year . e.g. 2 months for 1 etc.

4 different channels now to watch GAA, 2 you have to pay for, good or Bad, RTE will be showing some same games as EIR, whats the point?

"RTÉ's live club championship matches will consist of two matches each weekend, from September through November. Running alongside TG4's existing coverage, RTÉ will select their own two matches separate from the Irish language broadcaster's choices."

That's a serious amount of club football. Great to see!

Show a game a few days later, with the home local radio commentary from the Sunday.
Jaysus God forbid, Im referring to local commentary here, most of the chaps on local radio have a very skewed view of the world outside their own county,
Good to see rte getting involved but they must cover the lower divisions.

can you imagine Hegartys commentary trying to match to live viewing

Between IPTV and terrestrial we're looking good. Hopefully BBC get the finger out re the Ulster Championship and show all the matches live except Tyrone v Derry  ;D

When you think of the money RTE spend on showing Champions League games where nobody has any affiliation to the teams involved (Fenerbahce v Basel or the likes), this will cost peanuts for them.

Hopefully it’s a change in direction for soccer and rugby-obsessed RTE.

What rugby do RTE show?

RTE is and always will be a GAA station. Shows more GAA than rugby and soccer combined.

They're fck obsessed with the Dublin 4 stuff.
Sports news every evening - They introduce a soccer item by saying Soccer..then whatever.
They introduce GAA items by saying Gaelic games and then whatever.
But with Rugby it's just Peter somebody will miss the Europenn game v....
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....
