And here is how to stream it all with a NOW Sports and Sports Extra Membership.

The Irish Open golf tournament gets the weekend's sporting action underway, with Irish golfers Shane Lowry, Paul Dunne and Seamus Power are among the field at Mount Juliet in Kilkenny.

Padraig Harrington comes into the tournament in good form after he won the US Senior Open earlier this week. While Matt Fitzpatrick, who recently won the US Open, will also take part.

Coverage of the first round of the Irish Open begins at 1 pm on Thursday, with play from Day Two of the tournament taking place at the same time on Friday afternoon.

You can stream the tournament across the weekend with a NOW Sports Membership.

Saturday, July 2.

Saturday's action begins with the first test between New Zealand and Ireland.

Ireland beat New Zealand 29-20 in Dublin last November, but, otherwise, have a modest record against the rugby powerhouse.

Ireland have only beaten the All Blacks three times in 33 games, and they have never recorded victory against them in New Zealand.

Andy Farrell opted for experienced players to try to break that streak on Saturday, with Peter O'Mahony and Keith Earls included in the starting XV.

New Zealand, meanwhile, will be given the inside track on their opponents by Joe Schmidt, the former Ireland coach, who has joined the Kiwi's coaching ticket for the test series.

The test kicks off at 8 am Irish time, and you can stream the action from Eden Park, Auckland with a NOW Sports Membership.

Immediately after Ireland v New Zealand, England face Australia in Perth, which you can also stream with a NOW Sports Membership.

On Saturday afternoon, the qualifying session for the F1 British Grand Prix takes place at Silverstone.

Over 350,000 spectators are expected to attend the race across the weekend, where Max Verstappen will be the favourite for the race with the Red Bull driver enjoying a stellar season.

Coverage of the practice session and qualifying takes place across the day, and you can stream the F1 action with a NOW Sports Membership.

Meanwhile, at Mount Juliet in Kilkenny, the third round of the Irish Open takes place. Coverage begins at 1 pm and you can stream the golf live with a NOW Sports Membership.

On Saturday evening, the focus switches to GAA and the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship semi-final between Kilkenny and Clare.

Kilkenny are the most successful hurling team in the history of the All-Ireland. The Cats have won the championship a record 36 times, but have not won the Liam MacCarthy cup since 2015.

Kilkenny will be looking to take a step closer to ending that unwanted run and reach their first final since 2019. Clare, meanwhile, have not won the All-Ireland since 2013, but they are slight favourites for Saturday's tie.

Throw-in at Croke Park is at 5:30 pm, and you can stream the semi-final live with a NOW Sports Membership.

Sunday, July 3.

On Sunday, the F1 British Grand Prix takes place at Silverstone, where a record 142,000 spectators are expected to attend Sunday's event.

World champion Verstappen comes into the race leading the standings after winning the Canadian Grand Prix last time out.

The Red Bull driver has won six of the nine races so far this season and has accumulated 175 points to establish a commanding lead in the driver standings.

Lewis Hamilton has had a disappointing season and is back in sixth place in the overall standings. The seven-time world champion, however, won the British Grand Prix last year. He also comes into the race after a decent showing in the Canadian Grand Prix, where he finished third.

Coverage of the British Grand Prix begins at 1:30 pm and you can stream the race live with a NOW Sports Membership.

The second All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship semi-final takes place on Sunday afternoon when Limerick face Galway at Croke Park.

Limerick are the reigning All-Ireland champions and have been the best team in the country over the last few years. The Treaty County won the championship in 2018, 2020 and 2021.

Limerick will be the first team since Kilkenny in 2007, 2008 and 2009 to win the All-Ireland Hurling Championship three years in a row if they take home the trophy this year.
