RTÉ step up as News Now channel to show extra game on hurling’s weekend of the year


There’s wall-to-wall GAA this weekend.

The RTÉ News Now channel will show Clare-Tipperary at 4.00 meaning that this Sunday, there will be four hurling championship games live, either on terrestrial tv or on GAAGO.

Sunday is a huge day in the provincial hurling championships with the last round of the group stages taking place.

The Leinster matches throw-in at 2.00 with Galway-Dublin live on RTÉ while Wexford Dublin will be shown on GAAGO. Antrim-Carlow is another important game with the winner staving off relegation but it will not be broadcast.

The Munster games take place at 4.00 with the huge Limerick-Waterford clash to be shown live on The Sunday Game, while Tipperary-Clare is on the News Now channel. Limerick-Waterford is arguably the game of the weekend with the distinct possibility of the All-Ireland champions being knocked out should they lose the game.

See the full list of hurling permutations from both Munster and Leinster right here.

Meanwhile on Saturday, there will be two All-Ireland football championship group stage games on GAAGO, with Donegal-Tyrone preceded by Dublin-Roscommon. There will also be a whole host of minor games live on TG4, with the Leinster final between Dublin and Kilkenny shown on television.
