Hurling fans who were encapsulated by Wexford's dramatic victory over All-Ireland champions Clare were left hugely frustrated after the RTE Player suffered technical problems during extra time.

Online viewers lost the coverage during the second half of extra time when the epic game was still in the balance.

Viewers were left bemused by the technical error which was resolved, with many leaving to watch the ending elsewhere.

In a statement to independent.ie, RTE said: "Unfortunately we experienced a technical issue with the RTÉ Player stream during the Wexford v Clare match. Refreshing the stream resolved the problem for users.

"We regret any inconvenience this may have caused RTE Player users."

John Rogers (36) from Galway was one of the viewers affected and he was unimpressed by the interruption.

"There were 10 minutes to go in the game and I was glued to it when it suddenly stopped," he said.

"I don't have a telly so I missed the end of the game. A similar thing happened during the Brazil-Chile World Cup game. It was very frustrating."
