YESTERDAY’S ALL-IRELAND final was the most-watched show on Irish television so far this year, with over one million people tuning in to see Dublin beat Kerry.

An average of 875,300 people watched the game, with a peak figure of 1.08 million as the match reached its climax, meaning it toppled the previous most-watched show, which was Ireland’s Six Nations clash with England.

Meanwhile, this year’s All-Ireland Hurling Final between Kilkenny and Galway is the third most-watched watched event, garnering an average audience of 739,600.

Sunday’s match attracted 49,100 more viewers than last year’s final between Kerry and Donegal, while the average audience for all football matches in the Championship was up 4%.

In addition, there were 56,911 live streams watched on the RTÉ player in Ireland.
