Televised Leitrim games over the years

(Oldest Posts First)

Hi all; what Leitrim games (championship or otherwise) have been televised live over the years? My take on it would be that the 1994 All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin would have been the first, followed by the Connacht championship clash with Galway in 1995, the 2000 Connacht final, the Tommy Murphy Cup final of 2006, and one or two other games.

Wasn't The 94 connacht final on The sunday game And jimmy o connor (rip) recorded it And played it over And over again that night

Everyone stopped in jimmys on The way Home from doctor hyde park and The team brought in The cup

I saw pictures of it lately And. It looked Like The 1960s or 70s campared To todays lenses

I also think The draw with galway was televised replay in tuam i m on about

I'm not 100% about 2000 but The highlights Were shown on The Sunday And Monday game

Leitrim V Galway 1995 in Pairc Sean was televised live also. I remember being there, one of a few as most chose to watch it on TV and ticket prices were quite high for the time.

We definitely had a game televised from Salthill at some stage in the 2000s. Maxwell was RTE man of the match

Are you sure? I'd find that hard to believe, unless it was just before the time that there was the same near-blanket coverage of games that you get now.

Live games only really started in 95. There was the odd occasion when games were shown apart All Ireland semi finals and finals but the Leitrim Galway game in 95 was the start of RTE beginning to show live games regularly.
