Fans hoping to stream the Connacht SFC final replay between Galway and Roscommon live on the RTÉ Player were left disappointed when the service ceased working, and they weren’t shy in expressing their anger on social media.

The Sunday Game today televised the Ulster decider won by Tyrone at the expense of Donegal in Clones and, thereafter, the ongoing Leinster final between Dublin and Westmeath at Croke Park.

So the second edition of the Connacht decider was allocated to their streaming service, though not with great success.

Viewers quickly realised that they couldn’t avail of the national broadcaster’s online player, due to an unidentified malfunction, so they decided to vent their anger explicitly.
