GAA-related programming to complement RTÉ GAA Output

Duration: 60 Minutes

Amount: Up to €350,000 maximum

RTÉ Sport is the sole free-to-air broadcast partner of live GAA games in the All-Ireland football and hurling Championships 2017-2021, and we are looking for innovative and engaging programming ideas to complement our GAA output.

Types of programmes which played in this genre over the years include: Breaking Ball; Park Live; Road to Croker; The Committee Room; Championship Matters and Thank GAA it's Friday. In 2017, after a similar call for ideas, we commissioned All-Ireland Day - The Hurling Final, Blues Sisters and Micko.

We have 3-4 slots available at 2130 on Mondays in October, November and/or December. We are open to:
. GAA documentaries - individual or as part of a series (behind the scenes/profile pieces etc) and/or
. GAA/Entertainment format.

We will pay particular attention to proposals which:
. give us a unique perspective on Gaelic Games;
. demonstrate a full understanding of the unique nature of our national games and their place in the hearts of an Irish audience;
. come with clear and deliverable 360-degree digital/social plans as part of the proposal.

In brief, consider what you would enjoy as a GAA fan and match it up with the allocated budget. NB This is a rolling advert and proposals are welcome all year round, however we hope to make decisions on the 2018 programming by the end of February 2018.

We ask, in the first instance, that producers submit ideas into the eCommissioning system:
under the programme category Sport "GAA 2018".


**Only proposals submitted through e-commissioning will be considered.**
