Predicting this weekend’s seven big senior provincial championship games

Niall McIntyre

What a fortnight we have in store.

The provincial quarter finals have been and gone and now, across the provinces, we’re down to the last four. Over the next two weekends, there are some heavyweight clashes coming up, kicking off with Corofin vs Ballina Stephenites in the Connacht semi-final this Saturday live on RTÉ One.

That will be followed on Sunday by the two Munster hurling semi-finals, both of which are live on TG4, and the Leinster football semi-finals, which see All-Ireland champs Kilmacud Crokes take on Louth’s Ardee St Mary’s.
