You can watch almost every All-Ireland final since 1961 for free on the GAA website

THIS IS for everyone who was disappointed with the announcement that this year's inter-county GAA championships have been postponed.

The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), in partnership with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland have launched a GAA Digital Archive where fans can watch and rewatch some of the best clashes in Irish sports since 1961.

The website is completely free of charge and can be viewed from anywhere in the world-- so whether you've recently immigrated, are of Irish ancestry or are at home the Emerald Isle, you can simply visit the website and pick from hundreds of matches.

The archive includes 113 All-Ireland finals as well as provincial finals dating back from 1961 to 2016, and even All-Ireland club finals since 1989-- making up 500 matches in total.

Viewers can filter the matches by county, code or competition, and there are extra 'Rewind' match clips which show some of the highlights of nearly 60 years of televised GAA.

The archive launched last year, but with no sports for the foreseeable future and while everyone has a bit more time on their hands than usual, there's never been a better time to get stuck into a few of the greats.
