If you’re like us an are suffering unholy GAA withdrawals after the snow and ice took it away from us last weekend, the TV folk have outdone themselves with a bumper weekend of action on the box this weekend.
On Saturday night, we begin in Ulster with the clash between Donegal and Tyrone. Both sides have plenty of history and are lingering near the bottom of Division 1 so its bound to be a tasty affair.
Then on Sunday, TG4 are up early with the 12.30pm clash between Monaghan and Galway in Pearse Stadium. The Tribesmen are absolutely flying it this year, but Monaghan are no pushovers and this is expected to be a cracking curtain raiser to the next game at 2.30pm.
That game is the hurling Division 1B top of the table clash between Galway and Limerick. The winner of this is likely to be promoted to 1A next year. Limerick are on fire with a great up and coming side, up against the size and might of the All-Ireland champions. TG4 have picked this game over Cork and Tipperary and you’d have to say they’ve made the right decision there.
Once that’s done, flick over to Eir Sport to see Dublin and Kerry, always a fantastic game. Can the youthful Kerry somehow overcome the domination of Dublin? It’ll also be David Clifford’s first of many games against the Dubs.
Aside from these live games, there’ll be deferred coverage of Kilkenny and Wexford in the hurling and Kildare and Mayo in the football.
