20 February 2017
Liam Sheedy and Henry Shefflin in the RTÉ TV Studios.
RTÉ Sport is looking for "innovative and engaging programming ideas" to complement their live TV coverage of this year's All-Ireland football and hurling championships.
A budget of €350,000 will be made available over the next five years for making GAA-related programmes which are "truly innovative", "make creative use of new or existing presenting talent", "demonstrate a full understanding of the unique nature of the national games and their place in the hearts of an Irish audience" and "come with clear and deliverable 360-degree digital/social plans as part of the proposal".
The successful proposal will broadcast in 2017, and there may be an option of it being re-commissioned for 2018 and 2019. Closing date for submissions is March 27.
