Here Are The GAA Games Picked For Live TV Coverage This Weekend

After the feast a relative famine - there were a frankly ludicrous 18 games on last weekend but there are just three games down for decision across a very busy sporting weekend, featuring the first weekend of the World Cup along with oodles of Test rugby and the US Open. So while the volume of games caused ructions regarding GAA on TV last weekend...there is no such controversy this week.

GAA On TV - What games can I watch this weekend? 

With just three games down for decision, there are no games on Sky Sports at all this weekend. Instead, the focus will be on a Sunday Game doubleheader on RTE One. (Note the channel - the World Cup has squatters rights to RTE Two for the next few weeks). The first game will be live from Cusack Park, Ennis in what is a de facto semi-final in the Munster Championship - Clare host Limerick in a game that throws-in at 2pm. That is followed by the Connacht football final between Roscommon and Galway from Dr. Hyde Park, throwing in at 4pm.

GAA on TV - Who can I expect to be in studio?

Joanne Cantwell is in studio, and she will be joined by Henry Shefflin and Liam Sheedy for the hurling, while Colm O'Rourke, Joe Brolly and Colm Cooper will be fronting coverage of the football from Dr. Hyde Park. Marty Morrissey and Dessie Dolan are on commentary duties for the football game, with no details yet available as to who is going to have the mic for the hurling.

The programme begins at 1.40pm on Sunday.


GAA fixtures - What other games are on? 

Just one other game on - that's the other game from Munster as Cork look to secure passage to the Munster final. That game starts at 2pm.
