The BBC says it's looking forward to bringing Gaelic Games to viewers across the UK after agreeing a landmark five-year deal with the GAA  that will see the All-Ireland finals and semi-finals, and up to eight matches from the Ulster SFC broadcast live on BBC Two NI.

"The All-Ireland Senior Football and Hurling finals are significant sporting events, and we look forward to bringing them to viewers across the UK via the BBC's digital and linear platforms," Neil Brittain, Executive Editor of BBC Sport NI said.

"This new broadcast deal will transform the BBC's coverage of Gaelic Games and delivers free-to-air coverage of the Ulster Senior Football Championship, the Allianz Leagues and the All-Ireland series via BBC iPlayer, BBC Sounds, and the BBC Sport website.

"This agreement adds to the long-term contracts that BBC Sport NI already has in place for football, rugby and the North West 200."
