Letters to the Editor

As a supporter of St Patrick's Athletic and Irish soccer in general, I fully support Tom Cooper's letter (Irish Independent, May 11) highlighting the preferential coverage given to English soccer over our domestic league by RTÉ.

It shows what interest RTÉ has when the television highlights are shown at 11pm on Monday nights.

But it's not just with RTÉ the problem lies.
