Meath's Graham Reilly battles Wicklow's Paul McLoughlin for control of the ball

On 'The Sunday Game' last week, highlights of Wicklow's only game in the 2015 Leinster Championship lasted two minutes and 14 seconds. On the same show, we got 42 minutes and one second of highlights and analysis of two games that had been shown live on the same station just hours before.

Next week, on an even busier week on the GAA fixture list, Wicklow will go to Armagh in the Qualifiers, get even less time on 'The Sunday Game', and, most likely, their summer will be over.

Other than the few who managed to travel to two away games, what Wicklow fan will actually know how they performed this year?

I don't mean you throw a half an hour of 'The Sunday Game' over to Wicklow not even quite managing a shock against Meath, but there are surely other options in this day and age. Shouldn't there be an online highlights show - maybe 'The Sunday Game 2' - where we can watch extended highlights of these games?

Wicklow defied all odds last Sunday and gave Meath a scare. Their fans deserve to see more than 134 seconds of that.
