Sinn Féin MLA Sinéad Ennis has welcomed confirmation that the BBC has increased live coverage of Ulster Championship games this year.

The South Down MLA said, “It’s welcome that BBC has increased its live coverage of the GAA Ulster Championships to four games this year.

 

 

“This is a sign that BBC and others are beginning to listen to the voice of Gaels who feel frustrated at the inability to watch the island’s largest spectator sport on their television screens.

“Sinn Féin has been highlighting this issue for two years and have consistently lobbied the BBC and other broadcasters to ensure there is equal access to GAA coverage.

 

 

“While this is a welcome increase, more can and should be done to ensure parity of esteem for Gaels and licence payers.

She added, “Sinn Féin will continue to press broadcasters, including the BBC and RTÉ, on the need for fair, equitable and accessible access to Gaelic games for everyone right across Ireland.”
