Louth Fans Outraged as Kerry Game Not Broadcast

Louth supporters, especially the older generation, are disappointed that the final round game between Kerry and Louth on Sunday week (3pm throw-in) will not be available on TV or streaming platforms.

The Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) confirmed on Tuesday that this All-Ireland Group 4 game is the only one among the four top-of-the-table clashes that won’t be broadcasted.

In contrast, GAAGO will show the other game in the group between Monaghan and Meath, both of whom are seeking their first group win. Additionally, the Group 1 encounter between Derry and Westmeath, both winless this season, will also be streamed on Saturday.

Saturday week, Cork’s Group 2 match against Tyrone will be part of a double-header with their hurlers’ All-Ireland preliminary quarter-final against the Joe McDonagh Cup winners, Laois or Offaly, in Portlaoise or Tullamore. This football fixture will also be shown live on GAAGO at 3pm.

The decision not to cover the Kerry v Louth game particularly affects older fans who have difficulty attending games in person.

Meanwhile, Saturday’s Joe McDonagh Cup final winners, Laois or Offaly, will face Cork at their home venue the following week. The home support is expected to be outnumbered by Cork’s strong following, especially with the Cork footballers needing just a point to secure a spot in the last eight of the All-Ireland SFC after a recent win over Donegal.

Dublin and Mayo will clash at Dr Hyde Park on Sunday week at 3.45pm. This will be Mayo’s second consecutive game at the Roscommon town venue, having recently defeated the hosts. Although the Mayo executive requested that the neutral game be played outside Croke Park, the Mayo senior football team preferred the larger venue. RTÉ will broadcast this game live, along with the Group 1 match between Galway and Armagh at Sligo’s Markievicz Park earlier that afternoon.

The CCCC managed to schedule some group games over two days. For example, Derry-Westmeath and Roscommon-Cavan matches were split as neither pairing could surpass Armagh, Galway, Dublin, or Mayo in the standings.
