The GAA is pleased to confirm the Irish Daily Mail as International Rules Series sponsors and TG4 as the sponsors of the Irish team.

In addition, TG4 will broadcast the two games live and RTÉ will have the radio rights and the rights to a television highlights package.

Ireland face Australia in Páirc na nGael, Limerick on October 23 and seven days later the second test takes place at Croke Park. Both games will be played under lights.

Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Criostóir Ó Cuana welcomed today’s announcement and acknowledged the valued support of both partners.

He said: “The International Rules Series makes a welcome return to our calendar this year and the staging of the first game in Limerick brings an added dimension to the 2010 series.

“Our players are strong supporters of this series and GAA supporters have voted with their feet when comes to attending the games. “We look forward to welcoming the Australian team to Ireland and wish Anthony Tohill and his team every success.

“I would like to acknowledge the support of the Irish Daily Mail, our series partners and look forward to their coverage of the games and the build up in addition to the extensive coverage they already afford our games and activities.

“Similarly I would like to thank TG4 as team and broadcast partners as they add these international events to their extensive GAA stable. We look forward to working with you both.”

Paul Henderson, Managing Director of Associated Newspapers Ireland said: “The Irish Daily Mail is Ireland's youngest newspaper having launched in 2006.

“Those of us who work at the Irish Daily Mail are passionate about sport and understand that our readers share this passion - especially for the GAA.

“I'm delighted The Irish Daily Mail International Rules Series is our largest sponsorship investment to date.

“Although the first test is 144 days away, our coverage starts tomorrow with a four page special and continues every Monday bringing the International Rules Series to a wider audience than ever before."

TG4 Ard Stiúrthóir Pól Ó Gallchóir is delighted that the channel has acquired the television broadcast rights in Ireland to the International Rules Series 2010-2011.

"The Series is a natural fit for TG4," he said, "given our acclaimed year-round and free to air comprehensive television coverage of all levels of Gaelic Games, in both live and highlights formats as well as our Summer-long coverage of Aussie Rules.

“We are looking forward to combining the spectacle of the football with the passion of the Irish language."

The GAA can also confirm that RTÉ will carry live radio coverage of both tests.
