>In an effort to watch tonight’s Magners League match between Edinburgh and Munster, I had a choice between watching it with an Irish Gaelic commentary on TG4, or a Scots Gaelic commentary on BBC Alba. Neither channel offers simultaneous commentary in English.

I started off watching the match on TG4, but the accent of the co-commentator was so harsh and unpleasant that I switched to BBC Alba. Even though I understood even less of the Scots Gaelic commentary than the Irish Gaelic, the Scottish commentator had a soft and pleasant voice. Plus there were some interviews in English that were not expected.

Looks like I’ll be going back to BBC Alba when the need arises again.
