County chairman welcomes end of Sky broadcasting deal

A local GAA County Board chairman has welcomed the news that Sky Sports and the GAA has ended their broadcasting relationship.

It’s understood that Sky and the GAA were unable to reach a renewal agreement.

A factor in this decision was the new shortened GAA season and its knock-on impact on the number of games Sky Sports wanted to broadcast.

Enda Stenson is the chairman of the Leitrim County Board.

He says Sky was never the ideal broadcast partner for the GAA.
