A lot of people have recently switched over to Eir broadband in the last couple of years in the Charlestown area and all over Ireland for that matter. One of the perks of getting Eir broadband is the free access to the Eir Sports package.
With Eir Sports having exclusive rights to the GAA national leagues and BT sports showing a large number of Premier league football games this is a handy little package to have.
Before we proceed: Please be advised that this will only work if you have Eir Broadband in your home.

Indeed it may already have done so by the time you read this. Not sure If I already registered with Eir Note that just because you are an Eir broadband customer that does not mean you will have a My Eir account. This is almost certainly true if you set up your account over the phone or in person.
