Ulster GAA welcome BBC Radio FM coverage of Ulster Championship

May 21st, 2019

Ulster GAA has welcomed confirmation that the BBC will broadcast three games from this year’s Ulster Senior Football Championship on FM Radio.

The games are Sunday’s quarter-final clash in Enniskillen between Fermanagh and Donegal, the first semi-final between Armagh and Cavan on 2 June and the Ulster Final on 23 June. As previously announced, there will also be live TV coverage of two of these games, with deferred coverage of the first semi-final.

Welcoming the development Ulster GAA Provincial Secretary Brian McAvoy said:

“Ulster GAA has been engaging with the BBC in relation to their overall Gaelic Games broadcast package and our discussions have included FM Radio coverage. Until now radio coverage of Gaelic Games has been confined to Medium Wave only.

“I welcome this positive development and thank the BBC for taking this step. It is however just the first step on this particular journey and Ulster GAA will continue our dialogue with the BBC with a view to having all BBC Radio Ulster/Foyle Gaelic Games coverage aired on the FM broadcasting band.”
