I know you’ll have made your New Year’s resolution to get to every single one of our matches this year and although such plans might already have bitten the dust with a less than 100% attendance rate for the FBD campaign, your already flagging resolve may have this week been boosted by the arrival of your Cáirde Mhaigheo season ticket in the post this week (as mine did yesterday morning).
If that’s you, then you won’t really be all that interested in the grubby details about TV coverage of our NFL matches but there will, I know, be plenty of others who, for one reason or another, will (like myself) struggle to make it to a number of matches over the course of the spring campaign. This one is, then, for you.
This year, four out of our seven Division One matches are being shown, with three being broadcast live and a fourth transmitted as deferred coverage. TG4 are showing two matches live and one deferred while Setanta Ireland (which I know is only available on pay-TV platforms) is also showing one match live. Here’s the full of our matches that’ll be shown on TV:
- NFL Division One Round 1, 2nd February: Kildare v Mayo (TG4 Live)
- NFL Division One Round 2, 9th February: Tyrone v Mayo (TG4 Deferred)
- NFL Division One Round 3, 2nd March: Mayo v Kerry (TG4 Live)
- NFL Division One Round 6, 29th March: Dublin v Mayo (Setanta Ireland, Live).
