RTÉ Radio will broadcast the GAA All Ireland Hurling Final Replay on Saturday, 28th September on all wavelengths and via the internet to Irish people and communities around the world.
RTÉ is asking on those with relatives or friends abroad to let them know that this coverage is available and to invite them to the biggest party in Ireland’s sporting calendar.
Ireland: At home, audiences can listen as usual to the GAA finals on RTÉ Radio 1 FM, DAB, RTÉ.ie and on Longwave 252.
Britain: Across most of Britain, listeners can receive our coverage on Long Wave 252. In addition RTÉ Radio 1 is available on the UK free to air satellite platform Freesat on channel 750.
Worldwide: Across the world, the match commentaries will be available online at www.rte.ie/radio1 and www.rte.ie/sport
Shortwave to Africa: In Africa, where many Irish people live and work, often in relative isolation with poor communications, RTÉ is providing special transmissions on shortwave radio. See details below.
Note: For those living in Ireland, who wish to get details of the shortwave frequencies to friends or family living abroad, RTÉ is providing a special phone text service. Listeners text the word “shortwave” to 51101 and they will receive a short text message with the shortwave frequencies. These texts are charged at standard rates.
