Leitrim GAA is delighted to announce that its Management Committee has agreed on a broadcasting partnership with Nemeton TV in order to facilitate live coverage of the concluding stages of the Connacht Gold SFC and Smith Monumentals IFC. This broadcasting arrangement which has been planned over the past few weeks will involve full live coverage of the Senior Football Championship semi-finals and final and also the Intermediate Championship Final with commentary from the very experienced John Lynch. We are excited about this development, considering the impact that crowd restrictions are likely to have on attendances at these games which have traditionally drawn our largest following. These games will be on a pay-per-view platform of which details will be publicised as we get closer to the dates in September.
It is likely that from the quarter-final stages we will in a position to also offer another pay per view option of certain matches on a parallel platform . We are currently working behind the scenes on this parallel platform which is being developed in-house to bring free coverage of a game in each of the remaining rounds of the group stages, where broadband connectivity allows, to help complement this coverage effort.
It is important to acknowledge that clubs are part of this effort also in that permission was granted to the respective clubs to share the first-round group game, Mohill v Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s via Facebook live and it looks likely at least two games will be available to view this weekend, with moves afoot to have the Connacht Gold SFC encounters St Mary’s Kiltoghert v Mohill and Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s v Aughawillan available to view this weekend (more news to follow later today on our in-house trial broadcast of this game tomorrow evening).
We are living through strange times and with the continued co-operation of all concerned, we hope to bring increasingly improved coverage of our games across the platforms available to us over the next two months.
