Sunday 24 January

2.20pm: Peil na mBan 20 bliain ag Fás - To celebrate this land-mark season this mini-series will look back at some of the stand-out moments & memories of the players down through the years.

8:30pm: Laochra Gael - The new series of Laochra Gael continues with the story of Thérèse Maher, the Queen. The eighth of eleven children from a famous hurling family, Thérèse stood out from the beginning. She made her Galway debut at just 16, and it seemed that she was destined for success. But the win on the big day eluded her and Thérèse lost five All Ireland Finals. On top of this, she lost both her mother and her father during this time. And so, there was widespread jubilation when, on All Ireland Day in 2013, in her last ever game, Thérèse Maher fulfilled her destiny.

eir Sports 2
8.30pm: Cork v Kilkenny, All-Ireland SHC final - The 1999 All-Ireland SHC Final at Croke Park saw a young Cork side under Jimmy Barry-Murphy taking on old rivals Kilkenny, in Brian Cody's first year in charge of The Cats.

Monday 25 January

8pm: Cluichí na Bliana - Killyclogher took on Trillick in the Tyrone Senior Football Quarter-final and in a game of high drama, neither team was able to dominate, bringing the match to extra-time and penalties. Trillick goalkeeper Ryan Kelly proved to be the hero for his club after he saved the decisive penalty in a 4-3 win.
