BBC Sport NI win RTS for GAA All-Ireland coverage

BBC Sport Northern Ireland has won 'Best Sport Programme' at the Royal Television Society awards for the 2023 All-Ireland football final.

The production was nominated alongside Sky Sport's coverage of the Ashes and ITV Sport's Rugby World Cup.

The Croke Park showpiece finale between Dublin and Kerry was broadcast on BBC Two network television last July.

Sarah Mulkerrins presented the live broadcast and it was produced by Margaret O'Hare.

Judges said "the passion and joy in this clever production poured through the screen".

In a thrilling final at Croke Park, Dublin defeated reigning champions Kerry by 1-15 to 1-13 on 30 July.
