Cork GAA media partnership with Irish Examiner

The Irish Examiner and Cork GAA are delighted to announce a three year media partnership.

The  agreement , signed at Pairc Ui Chaoimh , guarantees live match coverage of every championship weekend for GAA fans in Cork, around the country and all over the world for the next three seasons with live streaming of football and hurling club championship games across all grades up to 2022.

Cork GAA throws in the ball for Championship 2020 this Friday night and supporters can tune in for free from the opening weekend right through to the business end of the championship. We kick off with the meeting of Premier SFC contenders Ballincollig and St Finbarrs from Pairc Ui Rinn.

Commenting at the launch of the streaming partnership, Cork GAA Chairperson Tracey Kennedy said: “This partnership is a great opportunity for our patrons to see games they might not be able to attend from the comfort of their own homes, and is particularly timely this year given the current limitations on spectator numbers.

“We have been exploring the option of streaming for some time now, and with the quality of the service provided a key priority, the Irish Examiner are the perfect partners for us. Their coverage of our games is already second-to-none, and this arrangement takes an already strong relationship to another level. My thanks to all involved in making this happen, and I look forward to tuning in myself given that, like so many other fans, I won’t be able to get to games for a while either!”

Irish Examiner editor Tom Fitzpatrick said: “The Irish Examiner continues to provide unrivalled sports coverage and with this partnership we add regular live streaming to our GAA match reports, analysis and star columnists and writers. With this partnership both organisations will work together to ensure fans get the best coverage from the Irish Examiner platforms, kicking off with our first live and exclusive stream, free to watch this Friday.”

On its website,, the Irish Examiner will provide live coverage of at least two to three matches over each club championship weekend during the 2020 campaigns. With a limit on attendances likely to stay in place through the 2020 season, the Irish Examiner has committed to providing free live coverage for viewers this season on the new Irish Examiner website. The Irish Examiner and Cork GAA will again provide exclusive coverage in 2021 and 2022.

The Irish Examiner is committed to bringing GAA fans an exciting matchday experience, with a top-class team that includes commentators Colm O’Connor and Des Curran, with analysis from the likes of Ger Cunningham, Mark Landers, Brian Cuthbert and Patrick Kelly. There will also be contributions from our award-winning team of GAA journalists.

The Irish Examiner and, together with our sister titles, The Echo &, continue to be an integral part in the lives of people in Cork and Munster.

Kevin O’ Donovan, CEO/Secretary Cork GAA said: “We are delighted to launch this special partnership with the Irish Examiner, never has the appetite for our games been so great.  As we embark on a bumper club championship our patrons will have the ability to watch games, thanks to the Irish Examiner, from the comfort of their homes.  The quality of coverage from the Irish Examiner will continue to ensure our supports can analyse and enjoy the championship throughout the season”.

Said Irish Examiner Operations manager Michael Sheehan: “We are very pleased to announce a new development for our readers with Cork GAA. This innovation will bring our coverage of Cork GAA to our readers in a new format and at a time that best suits their needs.

“It is a Partnership that we feel will be mutually beneficial for both parties and we look forward to working on these opportunities with Cork GAA and enhancing what we believe is already the best sports coverage in the country.”

The Irish Examiner Monday Sports supplement will also return next week. The first weekend of games will be covered in a bumper 32-page edition on Monday packed with the weekend’s GAA action providing unrivalled coverage of the GAA championships in our print edition. Also catch up with our pre-match analysis in Saturday’s weekend sports section.
