Sky Sports Viewership Figures Plummet For All-Ireland Hurling Final

Sky Sports Viewership Figures Plummet For All-Ireland Hurling Final
By PJ Browne Updated

It could be the simple case that there are a lot more Tipperary natives living in the UK than people of Galway origin, or maybe UK GAA fans are just tired of seeing Kilkenny in the All-Ireland final.

Viewership figures of this year's All-Ireland hurling final plummeted in comparison to last year.

According to UCD's Paul Rouse, just 32,000 UK viewers watched hurling's showpiece event on Sky Sports 5. That's down a massive 72,000 from last year.

It's not like there was considerable competition from other sports on September 6th either. It was an international weekend, so there was no Premier League football to compete with.
