CORK AND ANTRIM HURLING is the focus for next Sunday’s live TV coverage as the GAA club championships continue.

TG4′s two live games come from Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork and Corrigan Park in Belfast next Sunday afternoon.

First up at 2pm it’s an all-city meeting in Cork as reigning champions Blackrock play St Finbarr’s. It’s the last round of group games with Blackrock needing a win to qualify for the knockout stages while for St Finbarr’s a win or a draw will book their place.

Seven members of the Cork squad that reached the All-Ireland senior final in August will be in action. Damien and Conor Cahalane, and Billy Hennessy line out for St Finbarr’s while Alan Connolly, Niall Cashman, Daniel Meaney and Tadhg Deasy are part of the Blackrock ranks.

Then at 3.45pm the spotlight moves to Ulster for the Antrim senior hurling final between O’Donovan Rossa and Dunloy.
