A petition has been launched to save Seo Spóirt on TG4

This is going to get a lot of support

We can see this receiving a lot of support.

There was much disappointment amongst sports fans in Ireland this week when it emerged that Seo Spóirt would no longer be part of TG4’s schedule from April onwards.

Presented by former All-Ireland winning Kerry captain Dara Ó’Cinnéide, the show has been running for 11 years, covers a wide range of sports and regularly features insightful contributors such as Tomás Ó’Sé, Clare midfielder Gary Brennan and Seán Bán Breathnach amongst others.

The news that it was coming to an end was greeted with much shock and disappointment earlier this week, with Dublin footballer Ciaran Kilkenny amongst those to express their dismay at the news.

In response, a petition has been launched in an effort to convince Alan Esslemont, who came on board as TG4’s director-general last year, to reverse the decision, which has been labelled “deeply unpopular”, with Esslemont urged to acknowledge “the huge outcry since the decision was announced”.

You can check out the petition and add your signature if you wish here; given the popularity of the show and the shocked response to its axing earlier this week, we wouldn’t be surprised if it gets a lot of support.
