Westport's All-Ireland final clash to be streamed live

CAN'T make Westport GAA Club's big match in Croke Park on Sunday? No need to worry.

Fans will be able to view the final instalments of the 2016/17 AIB GAA junior and intermediate football and hurling club championships online via aib.ie/gaa and the AIB YouTube channel.

Eight teams from Mayo, Meath, Kerry, Tyrone, Kilkenny, Galway and Cork will compete in what is the pinnacle of the championships.

Westport are in action on Sunday, February 19, at 3.45 p.m. when they take on St. Colmcille's of Meath.

You can follow every minute of the nail-biting action online thanks to club championship sponsor AIB who recently teamed up with innovative TV service LocalStreaming.club.

Live video streaming is growing in popularity, and the games between Westport and Kenmare and Louisburgh against Glenbeigh/Glencar in the junior and intermediate club semi-finals in Ennis were shown online, with over 23,900 from 72 countries watching at least a few minutes of live coverage.

Said Liam Horan of LocalStreaming.club: “We have shown a number of games in the club football and hurling championships over the past two years, and we are delighted to now cover our first All-Ireland final series. These are huge days for all eight clubs involved and we look forward to allowing GAA fans worldwide to share in the excitement.”

The match commentary team over the two days will include Mike Finnerty (match commentator from Sky Sports and Eir TV), former Kerry footballer Stephen Stack and current Meath goalkeeper Paddy O’Rourke. The eight competing clubs will provide co-commentators, including Ger O’Connor (Glenbeigh-Glencar), Paul Grady (Westport), Maurice Power (Carickshock), Liam Sutton (Mooncoin) and MacDara MacDonncha (Ahascragh-Fohenagh).
