    Jack Byrne nominated for RTE personality of the year

    Great to see a loi player even getting nominated, kind of ironic given how little loi is on rte

    I was thinking that, has he even had any kind of media presence (interviews, other appearances on tv) to even be considered a 'personality'?

    I shouldn’t rise to this nonsense but there was more LOI on RTE than most of the other sports nominated plus Jack’s biggest moments of the year were literally live on RTE - FAI Cup Final and ROI caps.

    I don't buy this 'no LOI on RTÉ' nonsense. Sure, the coverage is crap at times, but we get far more coverage than the league deserves arguably.

    Good luck to him, any coverage of this nature of LOI is a good thing.
