THE EIR SPORT gold catalogue continues this week with a range of classic GAA, soccer, rugby and boxing all being aired over the coming week, providing sports fans their fix at a time when we’re all craving a return of live sport.

Wednesday night is GAA night on the channel with three matches from the Munster Senior Hurling Championship over the years being showcased.

The infamous 2004 Munster SHC final between Waterford and Cork is one that can fill the void for those missing the Championship.

From the World Cup, to League of Ireland to FA Cup Finals, football supporters have footage to reflect on as well as a classic documentary. Two Billion hearts: The Official Film of 1994 FIFA World Cup will transport you back to the 90s when the USA hosted the competition for the very first time as Brazil claimed their fourth title and Jack’s Army had a party in the sunshine stateside.

The gold catalogue kicks off this week with a look back on a game not too distant in memory for some, the 2019 Rugby World Cup pool C opener. It was a rollercoaster of a game between France and Argentina that could have gone either way. A game jam-packed with emotion, drama and determination as the two battled to kickstart their competition on the front foot saw the French narrowly coming out on top. There is also a reflection of Muhammad Ali’s early fights as a pro.
