Leinster's win over Munster in their match at the Aviva Stadium achieved the highest ever TV audience for a rugby match on the Irish language channel.

The vieweship figures, which were released this evening, showed the station's coverage reached 765,000 viewers.

A peak audience of 509,000 viewers watched the entire match.  

The huge audience places the match in the top five of TG4's most watched broadcasts ever.

The channel's Sport's Editor, Rónán Ó Coisdealbha, said: "TG4 has made a mark with its live sports' coverage.

"We are delighted that this keenly-awaited match at the Aviva Stadium attracted more viewers than the reverse fixture  in Thomond Park between these two great teams earlier in the season, shown on another TV channel.”

Last week it was announced that the Cork home of Munster rugby, Musgrave park, would be re-named Irish Independent park in a new sponsorship deal.
