Former Kerry star slams reports that the GAA are in talks with Sky Sports

Former Kerry forward and current Sydney Swans star Tommy Walsh has reacted angrily to reports that Sky are in talks with the GAA to broadcast our national games.

Walsh took to twitter and wrote: "So our "amateur" game is now being sold to Sky? There is no other sport in the world where players & supporters are taken advantage of more!"

GAA fans could be hit with TV subscription charges to watch some of this year's All-Ireland championship games.

Sky Sports are believed to be at an advanced state of negotiations with Croke Park to enter the GAA market as part of an overall deal featuring a range of broadcasters.

RTE will continue as the main rights holder, but several other stations, including Sky, are also interested in getting a slice of the market.

It's understood that negotiations have taken place under which the Sky package would feature up to 10 games, including two All-Ireland quarter-finals. It's unclear whether Sky's bid is in conjunction with an other broadcaster.

Awarding Sky exclusive rights to a particular package would spark anger among the GAA public as it would leave them facing subscription charges.
