To help facilitate members and friends living abroad the GAA is pleased to confirm that our official ‘Live Match Tracker’ will be in place for both the Football and Hurling All-Ireland Finals and available to a worldwide audience to follow on www.gaa.ie.
With the Hurling season reaching its climax this Sunday as Tipperary try to prevent Kilkenny from clinching a historic five in a row, we will bring you live match updates directly from Páirc an Chrócaigh
The Match Tracker was introduced for the four semi-finals in both codes to help GAA followers to keep up with the thrills and spills of the action that occurs in Croke Park.
Score by score you will be able to keep up to date with every incident as it happens, while soon after the game audio clips from both managers, Brian Cody (Kilkenny) and Liam Sheedy (Tipperary), will be uploaded to our Podcasts section on www.gaa.ie.
On the match-day, upon entering the news section of the website, a flashing bar will be running across the screen saying ‘GAA Live Match Tracker’. Once that link is clicked, it will guide you directly to the live page and you can get a minute by minute account of the game.
RTÉ Radio will also broadcast the GAA Hurling and Football All-Ireland Final deciders on Sunday September 5 and September 19 respectively on all wavelengths and via the internet to Irish people and communities around the world.
