Tommy Bowe will present eir sport's PRO14 rugby coverage
Tommy Bowe will present eir sport's Guinness PRO14 coverage for the coming season.
He'll be joined by Ireland internationals Donncha O'Callaghan and Luke Fitzgerald who will lead the punditry team.
The Irish broadcaster acquired the rights to all 152 games for the upcoming season and will show 30 hours of coverage each week, including up to six live games a week with extensive pre-match and post-match analysis, in addition to a weekly highlights show.
A sub-licencing agreement with TG4 will see the free-to-air station still show some games but the Leinster and Munster derbies will be kept exclusively on eir sport.
