GAA deal with Sky Sports to be raised at Galway County Council

Via Irishtimes

Last July the GAA-Sky Sports deal was raised in the Seanad by former Mayo, Galway and Leitrim county football manager, Senator John O’Mahony.

A former chairman of the Oireachtas Transport and Communications Committee, Senator O’Mahony said he was doing so “because all hell broke loose three years ago when the broadcasting rights to certain GAA games were sold to Sky Sports”.

At the time “ordinary supporters believed they had not been consulted” and “they fear the number of pay-per- view games will increase in this round of negotiations.”
