Tuning in to Gaelic Games

2013 is a big year for the GAA in Britain.

Kilkenny footballers are playing in the All-Britain League. Warwickshire hurlers are in Nicky Rackard Cup and London hurlers make their Leinster Senior Championship debut. It would be nice if the sports could get a little exposure to a wider audience here in Britain. The overseas contract the GAA has restricts viewership to a few diehard fans.

If the GAA would allow brief highlights on the digital red button it would raise the profile of the games greatly.

If 1m people can watch horses dancing to music during the Olympics, then I am sure they will warm to hurling and our football.
