Our upcoming SSE Airtricity Men’s Premier Division fixture against St Patrick’s Athletic will be broadcast live on Virgin Media Television.

The game at Richmond Park on Friday, September 22nd, is one of three key fixtures that will be shown live on Virgin Media Television in September.

Dundalk FC winger Daniel Kelly was one of five SSE Airtricity Men’s Premier Division players representing their club at Virgin Media Television’s studios in Ballymmount for the announcement on Wednesday.

The coverage will be led by Tommy Martin (presenter) and Bernard O’Toole (presenter and commentator), who will be joined by former Dundalk FC manager Vinny Perth, Brian Kerr, Ian Morris and Keith Treacy.

These games are in addition to three previous live matches on Virgin Media Television earlier this year, bringing the total number of live games to six this season.

Mick McCaffrey, Head of News and Sport at Virgin Media Television said: “We are delighted to announce three further top-class SSE Airtricity Premier Division fixtures which will broadcast on three consecutive match weeks next month.

“As the end of the season approaches these top-of-the-table games are sure to be massively entertaining and we’d really encourage the Irish football family to get behind our coverage and tune in.”

Mark Scanlon, League of Ireland, Director, said: “We’re delighted to bring these three massive games live to Virgin Media Television as the title race picks up pace coming into the final weeks of the season.

“It has been exciting working with Virgin Media so far this season who have brought a new dimension to League of Ireland broadcasting and helped bring our games to an even bigger audience.

“The three matches selected will have a huge bearing on the title race and we can’t wait to get them televised to a national audience and see how it all plays out.”
