TG4 have been incredible this year with the amount of games they have showed and as well as this they made some games even live to be shown on their Youtube channel.
They offer matches every Saturday or Sunday for the viewers, where as the other big channels only offer a highlights programme. Fair enough, these big channels will have the majority of the senior football and senior hurling championship, but TG4 show everything from colleges, to ladies football, to minor to U21 and now this weekend they announced what games they will be showing in the coming weeks in terms of club action.
Let’s take a look at this weekend for example, there are no inter county fixtures, so TG4 have decided to show us live coverage of the Dublin senior football championship on Saturday afternoon the 14th of April with a double header on the cards, first up Ballymun Kickham’s play St Brigid’s at 4pm, followed by Kilmacud Crokes v Ballyboden. The following weekend the Irish station will show action from the Limerick senior hurling championship, 1 game will be shown live on the Sunday 22nd of April with Na Piarsaigh taking on Doon at 2pm, followed by deferred coverage of Liam Mellows v Castlegar in the Galway hurling championship. The action doesn’t stop there though as on the 29TH of April TG4 will show another double header live, this time from the Cork hurling championship, Middleton play Bishopstown at 2pm, followed by Carrigtohill v Blackrock at 3.45.
Ladies football is then on the 6th of May with the two-league final down for decision in Division 1 and 2. On Bank Holiday Monday the 7th of May the Division 3 and 4 finals are down for decision. Absolutely superb coverage from the station and we hope they continue to this for years to come, it’s a great way of showing everyone the club game.
