SETANTA SPORTS TODAY confirmed their line-up for live transmissions for next year’s Allianz League.
Rory Gallagher’s Donegal, with a dozen new players on the panel ahead of pre-season will feature twice, starting on opening night – Saturday, January 30 – with a fixture against Down at Pairc Esler in Newry.
As well as that, Donegal’s away fixture against Dublin at Croke Park on Saturday, March 26, will also be screened live.

Donegal’s 2016 fixture list sees all five of their other outings on Sunday afternoons, which means that TG4 – who hold the Sunday rights while Setanta Sports have Saturday’s – might also show either live or deferred broadcasts.
The Irish language channel has yet to confirm their televised fixtures.
All of the seventh round of fixtures will take place on Sunday, April 3.
