Here's the fixture details for this weekend's key club championship matches around the country.

In Ulster, there's senior football final action in Antrim, Armagh, Cavan and Tyrone on Sunday. The biggest game of the year in the home of the 2021 All-Ireland champions Tyrone is between Coalisland Na Fianna and Dromore St Dympna's. Gowna and Ramor United drew 0-10 apiece last week and they return to Kingspan Breffni for their Cavan SFC replay clash. Kickhams Creggan will look to end a 67-year wait for an Antrim SFC title versus St Mary's, Aghagallon, while Clann Eireann are back in the Armagh SFC final for the first time in 53 years as they face Crossmaglen Rangers. 

Out west, and in front of the TG4 cameras at Pearse Stadium, Mountbellew-Moylough will be hoping to finally end their Galway SFC final hoodoo against Corofin.

Five more SFC deciders are scheduled on Sunday, all of which are in Leinster. Garrycastle and St Loman's renew acquaintances at TEG Cusack Park in the Westmeath decider and Rhode and Tullamore do likewise to see who wins the Offaly SFC final replay. Elsewhere, reigning champions Portarlington do battle with Portlaoise in the Laois showpiece, Eire Og bid for their second ever Carlow SFC five-in-a-row and Gusserane O'Rahilly's face off with Shelmaliers in Wexford.

The focus is on hurling on Saturday as Kilmacud Crokes and Na Fianna contest the Dublin SHC final at Parnell Park, live on RTE2. The Mayo and London (replay) deciders also take place.

The TG4 crew will also be at Semple Stadium for the heavyweight clash of Thurles Sarsfields and Loughmore-Castleiney - who meet in the Tipperary SHC final for the second time in history. Ballyea will have to do without talismanic former Hurler of the Year Tony Kelly in their attempt to recapture the Clare SHC crown at the expense of first-time finalists Inagh-Kilnamona. Also on Sunday, the hurlers of Naas aim to compete an historic senior championship double after their footballers brought up their end of the bargain last week.

Meanwhile, the Waterford SFC final featuring holders Rathgormack and The Nire has been postponed as a mark of respect to Pat Hunt who died suddenly.
