RTE will be broadcasting a massive double bill of live Munster SHC and Connacht SFC action on Sunday afternoon.

The Sunday Game Live commences at 13:40 and runs through until 18:00, featuring the crunch Round Five Munster senior hurling championship meeting of neighbours Limerick and Clare at 2pm and the Connacht football final between Roscommon and Galway at 4pm.

On Sunday night, The Sunday Game highlights package runs from 21:30 until 23:00 and will include action from all three of the day's senior championship games - the aforementioned two plus Cork V Waterford in the Munster SHC - as well as detailed analysis.

TG4 are broadcasting GAA 2018 at 11:05am on Saturday morning and will have another instalment at 8pm on Monday as well as a three-hour midweek GAA Beo show on Wednesday night at 7:20pm, where the focus of attention is the Munster and Leinster U21 Hurling Championship semi-finals.

The following night the TG4 cameras will be in Thurles for the second Munster U21 HC semi-final between Tipperary and Limerick - which should help make up for the comparative lack of GAA action on TV this weekend and the overkill of World Cup soccer!
