RTÉ has revealed its viewing figures for yesterday’s All-Ireland hurling final between Galway and Waterford.
The television audience for Galway’s triumph peaked at 1.1million, making it the most viewed programme of 2017 for the national broadcaster.
RTÉ said on its website:
“The match attracted an average audience of 901,500 to RTÉ2’s live coverage of the game.
73% of all those watching TV at the time were tuned in to The Sunday Game Live on RTÉ2.
The TV audience peaked at over 1.1 million people at the very end of the game (17:03) as the Tribesmen claimed a famous victory to bring the Liam MacCarthy Cup back to the county for the first time since 1988.”
The hurlers of both counties also wiped the floor with the abject performance of the Republic Of Ireland soccer team against Georgia on Saturday which was watched by 639,000 people at the end of the game.
