There is a huge weekend of club action on the horizon - seventeen county finals and lots more in store.

Football titles will be put on the line in Cavan, Down, Laois, Leitrim, Louth, Offaly, Roscommon, Tyrone, Westmeath, Wexford and Wicklow on Sunday afternoon. The Antrim SFC final replay between Cargin and Lamh Dhearg is fixed for Saturday.

In hurling, Munster kingpins Ballygunner are just 60 minutes away from a sixth Waterford success in-a-row, while neighbours Cratloe and Sixmilebridge are set to meet in the Clare SHC decider (live on TG4). SHC finals will also be played in Longford, Mayo and Sligo.

Meanwhile, Saturday's Dublin SFC quarter-final double-bill of St Judes v St Vincents and Ballyboden St Endas v Na Fianna will be televised live on RTE2.
