The eagerly awaited London GAA Senior Football Final will be broadcast on Irish TV on Sunday 29th November from the Irish TV Grounds Ruislip. The football final between Tír Chonaill Gaels and St Kiernans on Sunday will air on IRISH TV Sky channel 191, Freesat 400, All Free to Air Boxes, Eircom’s eVision and online at www.irishtv.com/live

Commenting ahead of the broadcast London GAA Chairperson Noel O’Sullivan said he was delighted that Irish TV would be bringing the games to a global audience. “We have worked with Irish TV over the past few years and we are thrilled that they are broadcasting the football final.  This is a phenomenal opportunity to showcase the outstanding work of all the GAA clubs in London to an international audience, we are so grateful for their continued support,” commented Mr. O’Sullivan.

Irish TV looks forward to bringing viewers deferred coverage of the London final from 6pm to 8pm on the Irish TV on Sky channel 191. The broadcast will include in-depth analysis and discussion with expert commentary from a host of GAA stars.

Irish TV head of programming Malachi Cush said the broadcast was important for the TV station.  “We have an excellent relation with the GAA at home and abroad and we felt it would be fitting to highlight the outstanding contribution that overseas clubs make in connecting the entire GAA family,” he said.

In June of this year, London GAA and Irish TV agreed a five-year naming rights sponsorship for London’s Ruislip grounds, placing Ireland’s first international TV channel at the centre of all GAA affairs in the UK capital.

Speaking at the launch of the partnership, GAA President Aogán Ó Fearghail said, “Irish TV know that wherever the Irish go, we go there too. I’ve travelled a lot of the world and no matter where I go, I meet other television stations but most other television stations only meet you where there are numbers, crowds but I meet Irish TV everywhere.”

The deferred LIVE coverage will be broadcast from 6pm – 8pm with full commentary, analysis, cup presentation and celebrations on Sunday 29th November on Irish TV SKY 191

Irish TV can be viewed on Sky channel 191, all Free to Air boxes, Freesat 400, Eircom’s eVision 191 and online at www.irishtv.ie
