THERE’S FOUR ALL-Ireland titles set to be handed out in Croke Park this weekend.

The junior and intermediate finals in football and hurling take centre stage with clubs from Waterford, Antrim, Galway, Kilkenny, Kildare, Roscommon, Mayo and Monaghan all in action.

They will all be bidding to land silverware in Saturday’s and Sunday’s encounters while there’s also All-Ireland senior hurling semi-final action on Saturday.

Portumna are hoping to reach St Patrick’s Day in Croke Park for the fifth time in the club’s history while Loughgiel Shamrocks aspire to contest their third decider.

For Limerick’s Na Piarsaigh and Carlow’s Mount Leinster Rangers, the hope is to qualify for their first ever senior final.

Here’s what’s in store:
