Finn Harps to have home game shown live on RTÉ


Finn Park is set to feature in a rare live TV game as Finn Harps take on Champions-elect Cork City.

On Monday-week, August 21, Harps’ home game against Cork City – originally scheduled for last month but postponed due to Cork’s involvement in the Europa League – will be shown live on RTÉ2.

To facilitate the live coverage of the fixture, the kick-off time has been moved forward from 8pm and will now kick-off at 7.15pm.

The first time that Finn Park hosted live television was the 1998 FAI Cup semi-final against Shelbourne, which finished in a 0-0 draw.

In 2007, a First Division clash against Athlone Town (a 1-1 draw) was showcased while the following season, games against Cobh and Sligo Rovers were screened live.
