The station has continually set new standards for sports broadcast coverage and analysis over the last number of years and we were particularly impressed by their GAA coverage in what was their debut season in 2011. Over the last number of years SKODA has been steadily building its GAA sponsorship portfolio including our sponsorship of Tipperary GAA and at a local level through our network of dealerships.
