AAI chief executive Ed McDonald said the minister’s role is of vital importance to the future of communications and advertising in Ireland.
Last week, the minister’s decided “on balance” not to make changes to the list of TV sports events available only to pay TV viewers and his decision was approved by the cabinet.
