Sky Sports and GAA should allow games to be broadcast on free to air channels over next six weeks.
With eight upcoming senior GAA inter-county games only available to view with a Sky Sports subscription, Labour Sport spokesperson Mark Wall has called on the games to be made free to air when people are confined to their homes during Level 5.
One of the key reasons for allowing the senior games to go ahead is that it is something for people to look forward to and enjoy from their own homes. It’s an important boost to people’s mental health that a limited number of games will go ahead. Sport is an important outlet for so many people and central to who we are as a country.
