Throw in is at 7pm in the Athletic Grounds in Armagh. The match will be broadcast live on RTÉ 2. 

Last year, Monaghan were knocked at the semi-final stage, when they were beaten by Donegal, and you can be sure they don't want to exit at the same stage this year.

After wins over Mayo and Kerry in the league, they are red hot favourites and have the capability to over come the Mourne men.

Although Down too look to be improving after a satisfying win over Armagh in the quarter-finals, they will want to secure another win and a place in the Ulster Final.

Sunday

The throw-in is at 4pm in Croke Park, and the Sunday Game are broadcasting the match live on RTÉ 2. 

Undoubtedly, current All-Ireland champions Dublin are the favourites in this match. They have dominated the province and are in search of their seventh consecutive Leinster title.

Westmeath successful campaigns last year and 2015, and you can be rest assured they will not give up easily.  They have caused trouble for Dublin at times.

Having won 36 of the 38 Leinster matches they have played since 2005, Dublin are the favoured team.

That's all the GAA that will be shown on TV this weekend.
