I think it's terrible that so many people who cannot get to the matches cannot see it especially on RTÉ. It's somewhat a disgrace. Imagine older people or the sick. They could forget about their troubles for a couple of hours as they look forward to and watch the football. Those in HQ need to think about the people who built the GAA in this country.

Same in every country, what about the poor sick Man Utd or Liverpool fan, all there games are on ppv, while some GAA fans complain of 14 exclusive PPV matches on PPV while you can still see 31 games live on RTE, which is also not free

Why is it so difficult to watch the Allianz league on Saturday night. I don't have Eirsports or Sky.
