Radio 1 gains all live rights for GAA games

RTÉ Radio 1 has successfully secured full and exclusive live radio rights for all GAA games for the next five years.

The station will include all inter-county league and championship action while RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta will again broadcast all-year long as Gaeilge. The GAA’s existing local radio agreement continues with 20 stations around the country and Today FM and Newstalk have both been awarded score flash rights.

The new deal means Newstalk will not cover any games live for the next five years, instead only offering the score flashes.

In addition, BBC Radio Ulster have rights to cover all matches with Ulster involvement.

The new deal begins with the 2017 Ulster Championship and runs until the end of the National League in 2022.
