Two football games live on RTÉ as GAA GO on a hurling-heavy weekend

Niall McIntyre

There are two huge hurling games on GAA GO this Saturday.

Dublin vs Wexford is arguably the game of the Leinster championship – it could be a case of winner stays in the championship – but it won’t be broadcast on free-to-air television this weekend.

As was the case for last weekend’s Gaelic Grounds thriller between Clare and Limerick, the 5.00 Parnell Park throw-in will instead be shown on GAA GO.

The game will cost €12 for a one-off purchase, while a season pass can be attained for €79. The three-for-two package, meanwhile, costs €24.

That may be a popular choice among hurling fans as, next up, straight after Dublin-Wexford is the meeting of Tipperary and Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

That Munster championship round three clash throws in at 7.00 and is also exclusive to GAA GO. Kilkenny and Antrim’s clash on Sunday makes it three games exclusive to GAA GO this weekend. GAA GO’s hurling coverage features analysis from hurling pundits such as Eoin Cadogan, Seamus Hickey and Tommy Walsh.

Meanwhile, it’s a football-heavy weekend on free-to-air television. TG4 has both All-Ireland under-2o semi-finals on Saturday while on Sunday, it’s an RTÉ provincial final double-header.

First up, Sligo will be hoping to take down Galway in the Connacht final in Castlebar while, after that, Clare will be hoping for a similar giant-killing in the Gaelic Grounds when they take on the All-Ireland champs Kerry.
