Ennis welcomes BBC decision to show Ulster Championship games

Sinn Féin Culture, Arts and Sports spokesperson Sinéad Ennis MLA has today welcomed the news that the BBC will show six live Ulster championship games in the next year. 

The South Down MLA said:

“News that the BBC have increased their live coverage of the Ulster senior football championship is positive and comes on the back of a significant campaign undertaken by GAA members and supporters as well as a broader BBC audience and license fee payers.

“As we enter into more uncertain times, many people will turn to sport broadcasts as a positive and safe alternative to attending games themselves.

“The live broadcast of these games will be welcomed by GAA fans across Ulster and Ireland.

“My party colleagues and I have continually raised the issue of live GAA coverage by the BBC and it is great to see that they have taken this onboard.

“We look forward to another successful  Ulster championship shown on the BBC.”
