“It was a missed opportunity this game not being aired”

Shane, Michael, and former GAA President Nickey Brennan review Wexford’s win over Kilkenny and it not being aired live

Shane, Michael, and former GAA President Nickey Brennan review Wexford’s win over Kilkenny and the decision not to air it live.

Former GAA president Nickey Brennan believes that someone needs to answer as to why Kilkenny v Wexford was neither on terrestrial TV nor on GAA Go.

RTE had updates during their live show from a game that arguably had the least at stake — Dublin v Galway — while The Models were in danger of dropping to the second tier if they failed to win and Antrim beat Westmeath.

“For many people who weren’t in Wexford Park and couldn’t see the game anywhere, I feel very sorry for them,” says Brennan.

“When we saw it last night on the Sunday Game, we had one auld dodgy camera so I feel very sorry for those that missed a cracking game.

“I can’t understand how it wasn’t at least put on GAA Go, but such as is.

“But look, Wexford were brilliant in the end and got their noses ahead at the right time.

OurGame co-host Michael Verney replied: “I couldn’t believe it wasn’t the chosen game on RTE given what was at stake, and the Wexford-Kilkenny games have been superb the past couple of years.

“To me, it was a mystifying decision.”

Brennan added: “I’m with you 100%, it was a terrible decision.

“Not having it on GAA Go at least, someone has got to answer for that.

“Wexford v Kilkenny rarely disappoints and there was a lot at stake here.

“Potentially, Wexford were going down to the Joe McDonagh Cup and a lot of people in Wexford, both before and after the game said to me: ‘this was the biggest game Wexford ever played.’ Even bigger than the 1996 All-Ireland.

“That’s how they viewed the game.”
