Helping Sligo Ladies Gaelic Football Stream County Finals Worldwide

First-ever live stream of Sligo LGFA to take place this weekend

Sligo LGFA will be the first in the country to live-stream its county final

The Sligo Ladies Gaelic Football team will contend in the county finals on Saturday, September 16.

Crucially, Sligo-based telecom company Fastcom will provide the broadband to stream all three of the county finals. The finals take place in Markievicz Park and will be live on YouTube, making Sligo LGFA the first in the country to do so.

Sligo LGFA Chairperson, Keith Gilroy said: “This could not happen without the help of Fastcom Broadband who have made this possible by their very kind sponsorship. This is another first for ladies’ football. It allows the Sligo diaspora all over the world the opportunity to see these games live.”

Keith said that the LGFA was always looking to try something new. Previously, the association introduced the ref camera, the sin bin, and the countdown clock with a timer.

Three years ago, Sligo LGFA decided to hold all three finals on the same day. This was to create an occasion buzzing with atmosphere.

Lorraine Gribbons, Managing Director of Fastcom, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Sligo Ladies Gaelic Football association by providing the broadband at Markievicz Park to stream the county finals live. The games are a fantastic way to bring everyone together. We are excited to help share this event with a wider audience. We’d like to wish the ladies the very best of luck in the finals this weekend.”

Its customers range in size from personal and residential users to large indigenous and multinational organisations and across all sectors including government, healthcare and retail in addition to logistics and education.

The three finals in Markievicz Park will see Coolera / Strandhill play against Curry in the junior; St Mary’s versus Drumcliffe/Rosses Point in the intermediate; and finally, St Nathy’s versus Geevagh in the senior.
