RTÉ's recently-wrapped GAA Nua won plenty of admirers for its informative, documentary style production as well as the access it enjoyed to high level players, coaches and squads in its four episodes.

A more than adequate replace for Thank GAA It's Friday then, although the absence of another GAA magazine programme is more widely mourned.

"It's really strange. When you are coming up to a championship weekend, I was in the routine of going watching Seó Spóirt," said Ciarán Kilkenny, an active and enthusiastic gaeilgeoir, this week.

"It's kind of a GAA thing, any GAA person would have looked at Seó Spóirt - it added to the buzz of the game and the personalities they had on it.

"And it was brilliant as well because people who didn't even speak Irish would watch it.

"They had a great set-up there, it was a really good show.

"I miss it and I'm sure a lot of GAA people miss it - it's a shame."
