The broadcaster has announced the new deal this morning, which will see up to 30 live games in 2017 alone.

The deal will not affect TG4′s long-standing coverage of club championship matches, as it was announced last December that the Irish language station had retained the rights for Sunday afternoon coverage until 2022.

The deal commences in May 2017 and will include early rounds of both club championships as well as county finals and the latter stages of the AIB football and hurling championships.

The provision of additional club games is part of an expansion of eir Sport’s live GAA coverage, which currently only consists of games in the Allianz leagues.

The broadcaster also has online clip rights to the club championships, Allianz league games and senior championship matches.
