This weekend sees the Munster and Leinster senior hurling championship finals down for decision and both will be broadcast live, along with two of the four All-Ireland SFC Round 3 Qualifiers.

The action starts on TG4 on Friday night in Tralee when Kerry will look to record a fourth provincial success in seven days when they take on Cork in the Munster U20FC final.

On Saturday, Sky Sports' coverage of the All-Ireland senior football championship resumes with Round 3 qualifiers between Cavan and Tyrone and the much-publicised clash of Kildare and Mayo, which has now been moved from Croke Park to Newbridge. Coverage for those games commences at 4pm.

Sunday is all about the hurling and RTE One will provide the live action from 1.10pm to viewers as Clare and Cork battle it out in the Munster SHC final for the second year running. That'll be followed by the meeting of Kilkenny and Galway in the Leinster decider (throw-in 4pm).

In case you miss the weekend's live action, The Sunday Game has you covered on RTE 2 on Sunday night while TG4's 2018 GAA programme on Monday evening will also provide highlights of all this weekend's championship games.
