TG4 to show 40 live GAA games this spring

Irish language station TG4 has today announced its plan to show 40 GAA matches as the station launched its Spring GAA Schedule Live and exclusive coverage of all the major Finals including the Allianz Football League Finals, Allianz Hurling League Final and the AIB All Ireland Club Finals will be included in the bumper schedule for GAA fans. 

TG4 will broadcast 40 GAA matches between now and April beginning with live coverage of the O'Byrne Cup Final on Friday 18 January.

The station's Allianz Leagues coverage starts on Sunday 27 January with full coverage of both the All Ireland Football and Hurling champions. GAA Beo will be live from Clones with football champions Dublin taking on Monaghan. There will be deferred coverage of Wexford against hurling champions Limerick in the first round of the Allianz Hurling League.

TG4 continues to be the home of live and exclusive coverage of all the major finals including the Allianz Football League Finals, Allianz Hurling League Final and the AIB All Ireland Club Finals.

Following on from last year's successful coverage, GAA BEO will again show three Allianz League games in full every Sunday, beginning on the 3rd February.

TG4 will also provide a comprehensive service for the GAA Community on the Spórt TG4 YouTube page with live coverage from no less than 13 different events and games including the AIB All Ireland Intermediate and Junior Club Football and Hurling Finals, All Ireland Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsir Finals, Electric Ireland Sigerson and Fitzgibbon Cup Finals, Gourmet Food Parlour O'Connor Cup Ladies Football Final and the All Ireland Colleges Football and Hurling Finals (Post Primary Schools Finals).

TG4's Head of Sport Rónán Ó Coisdealbha said: "We look forward to our 20th year of broadcasting Allianz League matches and we are proud that our station has a long history of providing comprehensive GAA coverage at this time of the year. These 40 GAA matches will provide GAA fans with the best possible line-up within the GAA world from Scór na nÓg Finals to the Allianz League Finals."

GAA Beo is produced by Waterford based production company Nemeton TV and the series will be presented by Micheál Ó Domhnaill with commentary by Brian Tyers, Mac Dara Mac Donncha, Marcus Ó Buachalla and Cuán Ó Flatharta.
