GRIFFIN CALLS ON GAA TO REVEAL FUNDING PLAN
There’s been a call for the GAA to reveal how the funding from a broadcasting deal with Sky will be distributed.
It was announced yesterday that a 3 year agreement has been put in place that will see a number of championship matches available only to their subscribers.
The GAA President Liam O’Neill says the prospect of making games more widely available to Irish people abroad was a ‘critical’ factor in their talks with Sky.
Many of the matches covered by the agreement will be broadcast in the UK and Australia too.
Former Wexford Hurling Manager Liam Griffin wants the organisation to reveal their plans for the TV rights deal funding
