This weekend is all about the senior hurling final between Galway and Waterford.
The Liam MacCarthy Cup will be going to a county it hasn’t visited in at least 29-years on Sunday and the final is the main focus of the upcoming television coverage.
Up first on Saturday are two ladies football semi-finals on TG4, with the intermediate game up first between Sligo and Tyrone while the senior semi-final between Cork and Mayo gets underway at 4.45pm.
The GAA equivalent of the Late Late Toy Show is on Saturday night as RTE unleashes ‘Up for the Match’ on us.
Sunday begins with the All-Ireland MHC final between Cork and Galway on TG4 before the big one on RTE2 and Sky Sports Arena.
The All-Ireland final special Sunday Game reviews all the action at 9.30pm on RTE2.
