All of this weekend’s GAA action, teams, news and talking points

Oh me, oh my, what a weekend.

This is a GAA heavy weekend, with wall to wall games stretching right through from Saturday to Sunday, each bigger than the last.

Keep up with all the action here.

There are of course some predictable ties- the All-Ireland champions are back in action as Kerry take on Tipperary in a game that many see as a foregone conclusion.

Dublin will attempt to win the Leinster championship for the 13th time in a row, and you can’t see Laois tripping them up in the first round of their defence.

However, there are some cracking ties that we get to sink our teeth into. The Ulster championship is traditionally the most competitive and this weekend is no different.

Armagh take on Cavan, and although you might jump to predict a win for the oRchard county it’s important to remember that Kieran McGeeney’s men have had a dire record in the provincial championship and haven’t reached a semi-final in years.

They will definitely see this as their best chance to do so, and another team who will see this weekend as a golden opportunity is Down.

After a few disastrous years, the mourners county are up against a rattled Donegal who have as much off field problems as they do on the field.

The biggest game of the week however, is undoubtedly Galway vs Roscommon in the Connacht championship. The Tribesmen are still favourites but you would be a brave person to back against the Rossies after their brilliant performance against Mayo.

With so much action going on, it can be hard to follow so we have made it easy for you and stuck everything into a convenient liveblog for you below:
