Sky has successfully retained the Irish broadcast rights to Premier League football, signing a new three-year deal.

The TV, home phone and broadband provider will show 116 live matches per season between 2013-14 and 2015-16, mirroring the UK position.

Irish viewers will continue to enjoy Super Sunday and Monday Night Football, in addition to Football League, Lions Tour, European Tour and Ryder Cup golf coverage.

Sky has been awarded live broadcast rights across all platforms - including satellite, cable, IPTV, online and mobile.

As such, the firm's customers will continue to benefit from live sport through Sky Go on PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets and games consoles.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said the new deal will mean more live Premier League matches will be broadcast in Ireland than ever before.

"Our Irish viewers can enjoy an unrivalled choice of the biggest and best games across Saturday evenings, Sunday afternoons and Monday nights," he stated.

"Sky Sports' Irish viewers can enjoy Premier League football in HD, 3D and online as well as across mobile and tablet devices. Combined with our already unrivalled portfolio of sports, there has never been a better time to subscribe to Sky Sports in Ireland."
