THERE’S GOOD NEWS for GAA fans that want to watch next Sunday’s Connacht senior football final replay between Galway and Roscommon.

It had looked like there would be no coverage of the game due to the fact that RTÉ are already televising the Ulster and Leinster senior football finals at 2pm and 4pm.

But RTÉ have announced today that the game will be streamed live on RTÉ.ie and the RTÉ Player across the island of Ireland.

And international GAA viewers will be able to see the game on GAAGO.

The game throws in at Elverys MacHale Park in Castlebar at 3.30pm. Adrian Eames will be on commentary duty with ex-Kildare player Dermot Earley providing analysis. The commentary will begin at 3.25pm.

Donie Smith’s last-gasp point delivered a draw for Roscommon last week as they finished tied at 1-10 to 0-13 against Galway.
