It's All-Ireland football semi-final weekend and in total there are six live games to watch.

Saturday sees the clash of an all-conquering Dublin side and a rejuvenated Galway outfit at 5pm, which is on RTE and Sky.

The Dubs are back at the penultimate stage for the ninth successive season. For Galway, it's their first All-Ireland semi-final since 2001 when they last won the Sam Maguire Cup.

The Tribes will be in Croke Park early tomorrow afternoon as their minor footballers are in action against Meath and TG4 has live coverage of this curtain-raiser (3pm).

On Sunday, it's the turn of Monaghan and Tyrone who meet in the other All-Ireland semi-final and this all-Ulster encounter is being shown by RTE and Sky with throw-in at 3.30pm.

Monaghan have already beaten the Red Hands twice this season between league and championship but Tyrone hold the upperhand in their recent meetings at headquarters.

Before that, TG4 has the second All-Ireland MFC semi-final involving Monaghan Kerry who are chasing a fifth outright title at this level (1.30pm).

But, that's not all, as TG4 will also have coverage of the two remaining All-Ireland Ladies Senior Championship Quarter-Finals on Sunday afternoon. Both on live television and stream.
