Local Councillor weighs in on GAAGO controversy

A Sligo Councillor and former inter county footballer says it will be unfair on GAA supporters if they will be charged for online access watch the Sligo Senior Football team play their remaining games in the All Ireland Football Championship.


Cllr Paul Taylor says poor quality broadband will also dictate that GAA followers in many parts will not be able to watch GAA Go online.


The Fianna Fáil Councillor’s comments come as calls are being made for the TV licence fee to be reduced over the GAA pay-per-view controversy.


Speaking to Ocean FM the former Sligo senior manager says the football and hurling championships should be available free to watch on terrestrial TV.
