    EirSport is behind some paywall. Half the counties don't have a LoI team or are outside reasonable driving distance to a game.

    Opportunity seems lost somewhere in between for new clubs/regions to become part of LoI family.

    I'd prefer to watch a game with plenty at stake in front of a passionate crowd over a nothing match involving one of the leagues finest silver as you put it.

    The first division play offs would be worth putting on too if there's no other big game in the premier those weekends.

    Maybe this is why RTE hardly show anything before September. They only want to show a game if there's a trophy given out at the end.

    RTÉ not showing many games before September shouldn't be affecting clubs attendances. People are always more likely to go to a game when there is something on the line be it on tv or not.

    Personally I don't mind so-called dead rubbers. They are still games to be won.

    If the LOI ever broke away from the FAI and had scope to negotiate their own TV deals, I was thinking on a fair deal (to start off with)

    What about a flat 5k fee and go one extra by giving something to the away side, a nominal 2k, so 7k per match, its really not a huge amount, but of course it will never happen.

    Still its an area that could be easily marketed, get the right sponsors onboard, and make it a consistent event, not having months or even weeks apart with no game live on tv.

    It used to be 5k per live match.

    Must be the first time in well over a decade that RTE are not screening a game live on the opening day. Not a good sign that

    While Eir may not have the same nationwide coverage as RTÉ. When it comes to actual coverage of the League, they leave them dead. Loving the Podcast. Now if only they'd also do a highlights show, which is on at a reasonable time and contains, you know, highlights!

    Such a pity Virgin Media got rid of it on their channel listings though. Last game I got to watch on it was our away tie against Genk before it went.

    Great news that Eir are continuing to take a big interest in the league. RTE are still contractually bound to show 17 signals for the next 2 years (i think) too.

    If the LOI ever broke away from the FAI (again) it'd be an utter shambles.

    The proverbial first item on the agenda for the first meeting would be a split

    Might be wrong but didn't they not show the opening game last year? U21 rugby or something was on.

    I dumped Virgin media because of that decision. Best move ever. Got Sky for TV (minus Sky Sports which I'd had with Virgin) and Eircom for broadband - giving me did sport and bt sport. Saved money too.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.
