National League: Ulster sides in TV bonus

Dublin and Ulster are the big winners in the programme of live Allianz National football League games to be screened by Setanta on Saturday nights over the next few months.

However, the schedule will not be well received in many counties who find themselves either completely off the schedule or having just one game covered.

Down fare best of all, with no fewer than five of their seven games to be screened live, followed by Dublin on four while Armagh, Cork, Tyrone and Donegal can look forward to two each.

Kerry, Mayo Derry, Monaghan and Antrim each have one live NFL game. Galway are the only Division 1 team who won't feature; nor will their hurlers as Setanta's two scheduled games feature Tipperary against Kilkenny and Waterford respectively.

Setanta CEO, Colin Morgan said: “We're keen to show as many counties as possible but we have to work with the games which are fixed for Saturday.”


Feb 5: NFL: Armagh v Dublin; Mayo v Down.
