Poor RTÉ Sports Coverage?

I posted recently that Naoise Ó’Muirí, a Fine Gael councillor, reads this blog Fine Gael Councillor asks for Athletics Coverage, and read today in The Northside People, a local newspaper, that due to the poor scheduling from RTÉ he wants €20 back from the TV licence he paid.

RTÉ’s response was interesting. A spokeswoman claimed that the company did provide suitable sports coverage on television, including athletics such as the European Championships, Indoor Championships and Irish Championships. The World Championships were adequately covered in the News so as to not warrant its own programme. That is a poor excuse.

I think I could do with €20 so I could do Euromillions tomorrow.
