Live shinty coverage - the hidden cost.

Cristiano Ronaldo takes up his Caman by Slugger O'Toole.
Possibly the world's most expensive shinty player. Sin thu fhein, Ronaldo!

Bad luck for Kinlochshiel shinty squad who went down 5-1 to Strathglass in the Balliemore Cup final on Saturday.

When we arrived at the Plockton Inn the game was on television and the team were 3-1 down in the second half. It didn't look good.

It was a surprise to find Neil "Ach" MacRae, the veteran Kinlochshiel full centre, watching the game in the pub, rather than follow the team to Rothesay, where BBC Alba was broadcasting from.

"Oh, they offered me a place in the squad, but I couldn't turn down the chance to see them live on television," quipped Neil.

For the final score watch the match again on the BBC Alba i-player
