As It Happened: All Of Today's Club GAA Action

It's a huge day of club action in the GAA with provincial games taking place up and down the country. We're keeping you up to date with every point, puck and goal on our liveblog with SportsDirect.com.

Two massive games will take place today, one in each code. In Ulster, the football final will see the meeting of Gaoth Dobhair and Scotstown, with the Donegal side hoping to become the first club from their county to be crowned provincial champions since 1975.

The Leinster hurling final will be contested by Ballyboden St Enda's and Ballyhale Shamrocks, with the Dublin side in search of their first Leinster title.

Today's Games:

Gaoth Dobhair (Donegal) v Scotstown (Monaghan) - Healy Park, 2pm

Ballyboden St Endas (Dublin) v Ballyhale Shamrocks (Kilkenny) - Netwatch Cullen Park, 2pm

Gaoth Dobhair enter today's Ulster final as slight favourites, with their impressive victory over Crossmaglen meaning they enter the match in fantastic form. Donegal clubs have an amazingly poor record in the Ulster championship, with only one winner the competition's 50 year history. Gaoth dobhair will be hoping to buck that trend this afternoon, and they look well capable of doing so.

Scotstown required a last minute winner to get over the challenge of Derry's Eoghan Rua in the semi-final, with goalkeeper Rory Beggan once again the hero. The Monaghan net-minder has enjoyed a remarkable 2018, and a provincial medal would be the ideal end to a real breakout season.

Ballyhale Shamrocks return to the Leinster final for the first time since 2014, with Kilkenny legend Henry Shefflin as manager. The club suffered an uncharacteristically lean period over the last few years, with a four year gap between Kilkenny championships. They are most definitely back in form however, with a number of young players set to make an impact today.

Ballyboden St Enda's are appearing in their second ever Leinster final, and will be hoping to go one better than their loss to Birr in 2007.
