Explained: Why The Connacht Final Replay Will Not Be Broadcast On Live TV
By Balls Team Updated

Yesterday's Connacht final between Galway and Roscommon was ultimately a disappointing game in terms of quality. Though the poor weather conditions at Pearse Stadium were certainly a mitigating factor.

The game finished as a draw with the replay initially being scheduled for Saturday evening at MacHale Park in Castlebar.

Since then, Connacht GAA have rescheduled for the following day. This was due to the qualifier between Mayo and Kildare being held at MacHale Park.

The game will now be played on Sunday at 3:30pm.

Sky Sports had first choice of games on Saturday, they will be showing the qualifier between Mayo and Kildare .

As RTÉ are scheduled to broadcast both the Ulster final, Donegal vs Tyrone, at 2pm and the Leinster final, Dublin vs Westmeath, at 4pm they will not be showing the replay of the Connacht decider on live TV.

An RTÉ source told Balls.ie that they are looking into the possibility of streaming the game online.
