Hurling dominates as RTÉ announce Championship games to be shown LIVE

"Dublin are going to win Leinster, that's set in stone."

So said Colm Parkinson on Monday's GAA Hour Show. Meath, Kildare and co. might beg to differ but the majority of football fans will find it difficult to argue that point.

The same goes for Munster where Kerry are all over it.

The provincial football championships are dying a death and that's why, on the day RTÉ announced their live games for this summer, hurling is dominant.

RTÉ's summer schedule

Beginning on Sunday 12 May on RTÉ2 with a Munster Senior Hurling double bill of Waterford v Clare and Cork v Tipperary, the Sunday Game Live will have 32 live games in 2019.
