Setanta Sports has announced that it has won the rights to broadcast 33 English premiership games in the Republic of Ireland next season.

these are the 3 P.M. kick-offs which means that the Premier league obviously have some faith in the Irish division of Setanta.

Setanta UK was forced into administration last month after it failed to meet payments to the English and Scottish premier leagues.

The closure of Setanta UK meant the loss of 200 jobs but Setanta Sports Ireland has continued to broadcast in the Republic where it employs 180 people.

this is good news for those of you with subscriptions or those with updated boxes.

nice to have a bit of good news for once.
