Exiles blanked out

It is sad to see the GAA going to sell their soul to Sky Sports so they can milk Irish exiles.

It is bad enough that we have to leave our native land but it seems the GAA do not care about us exiles.

I live near Vancouver Canada and there is no way I could afford to pay Setanta Sports to watch the games I dearly love. It was cheap at the start but the only way was up with the price. As I am a pensioner I now listen to it on the radio. I feel so sorry for the new Irish who are arriving in Vancouver every day as I know what they are going through. It would be a great help if the GAA would make it cheaper for these new exiles to watch the sport they love.
