RTÉ Announce Viewing Figures For The All-Ireland Hurling Final

RTÉ Announce Viewing Figures For The All-Ireland Hurling Final

Over 70% of people watching television in Ireland yesterday afternoon were glued to the All-Ireland hurling final, with an average viewer figure of 804,500 on RTÉ for Tipperary's dismantling of Kilkenny.

Sunday's audience peaked at 901,900 but was down on the last year's thriller between Limerick and Galway, which peaked at 1,007,500.

On top of the television figures, there were a further 96,000 streams of the match on the RTÉ Player. While it's understandable that the rather one-sided affair on Sunday couldn't top last year's final, what will be interesting to see is if there will be a repeat of 2018, when the hurling final drew in more viewers than its football equivalent.

When compared to Ireland's clash with England in this year's Six Nations, it drew in a viewer average of 979,400. So maybe we are turning into rugby country!
