Meath SFC game to feature on TG4
Simonstown's opening game of the SFC against Skryne will be shown on TG4 on Sunday 2nd August as part of the Irish TV station's GAA club coverage for 2020.
The Meath SFC game will not be a live game on that Sunday afternoon, but it will be shown in full immediately after the Galway SFC clash between Corofin and Oughterard live from Pearse Stadium, Salthill, 2.30pm.
TG4's flagship series GAA BEO will hit the ground running with two exceptional hurling ties next weekend, one live on Friday night and one live on Sunday afternoon.
On Friday 17 July GAA BEO begins with live coverage from theWexford SHC when champions St Martin’s clash with old rivals Oulart-The Ballagh.
On Sunday there is another heavyweight clash when Ballyboden St Enda’s and Kilmacud Crokes face off in a repeat of the 2018 Dublin SHC final.
TG4's extensive club championship coverage will continue each week with live football and hurling coverage from across the country and details of the first three week’s of coverage have been outlined below.
Normally beamed into our living rooms almost every week of the year, presenter Micheál Ó Domhnaill will be again fronting the coverage after a 4 month absence.
“I’m delighted and relieved to be back covering matches on GAA Beo. After such a long time in lockdown we are all looking forward to some live action and while we have a long way to go before we can get back to anything like normality let’s hope that this is the first step,” said Ó Domhnaill.
TG4’s Head of Sport Rónán Ó Coisdealbha said: "We are very grateful to the GAA and to the various County Boards around the country who have been very helpful in preparing for the return of live coverage. We look forward to providing extensive live television coverage from the GAA Championships during the coming months."
