It’s being reported that the GAA looks set to make a deal on its main broadcast rights with RTÉ and Sky Sports for a further five years in a deal worth an estimated €55 million.
It’s expected that subscription channel Sky Sports will broadcast 14 All Ireland championship games exclusively.
Last December, the Kerry County Board passed a motion from Beale GAA club calling on all games to be kept on free-to-air, non-subscription TV stations.
The motion was defeated at the GAA’s national Congress in February.
Maurice Mannix of Beale GAA club says he’s not surprised by the news of the likely deal but is disappointed.
