Jim Gavin And Dublin Reportedly In Dispute With RTÉ

A few words with Jim Gavin were conspicuous by their absence from RTÉ's League Sunday over the past two weekends.

Following the broadcast of highlights of Dublin's game against Donegal at the weekend and their victory against Tyrone in Omagh a week previous, there were no post-match interviews with the national broadcaster.

In today's Irish Independent, Colm Keys reports that RTÉ has been refused interviews - for both TV and radio - after Dublin's last two league fixtures.

It's said that the dispute is regarding the supply of DVD recordings of recent Dublin games which would be used for analysis.

Gavin did speak to eir Sport following the win against Donegal at the weekend. All three of Dublin's games in the league so far have been broadcast live by eir.

The Irish Sun also reports regarding the lack of recent interviews by Gavin with RTÉ. According to Gordon Manning, RTÉ officials are unaware of any complaint by Dublin management or the county board.

Last summer, after Dublin's Leinster semi-final win against Westmeath, Gavin and Dublin players refused to take part in post-match TV interviews.

The Dublin manager later said that this refusal was due to the coverage of Diarmuid Connolly's pushing of linesman Ciaran Branigan three weeks earlier.
