The All-Ireland Championships are finally here! In this most remarkable year - a year that was already a poignant one for the GAA - we will be watching championship hurling, camogie and football at last.
It may be in an unfamiliar season, it may be in strange circumstances, but it is here. At 6pm today, Saturday, Sky Sports will broadcast Dublin vs Laois in the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship, while tomorrow will see RTÉ kick off their championship television coverage with Clare vs Limerick in the Munster Senior Hurling Championship, at 3:45pm.
As we sit waiting patiently for the first ball to throw in, both broadcasters have stirred the soul with their fantastic promotional videos. Firstly, Sky Sports ponder 'What is love?'

Meanwhile, Tori Amos provides the soundtrack for RTÉ's offering. It's winter time and "It's anyone's game."
