DONAL ÓG CUSACK will line out for RTÉ’s Championship team this summer.

Cork’s three-time All-Ireland winning goalkeeper joins Sligo All-Star Eamonn O’Hara on the broadcaster’s panel of experts for the 2013 GAA Championships.

In total RTÉ will televise 31 live games across both codes including both semi-finals in football and hurling as well as both All-Ireland finals.

Coverage begins with a football double-header next Sunday, 19 May, as Armagh meet Cavan in Ulster and Galway face Mayo in Connacht.

Long-running highlights package The Sunday Game returns for its 35th season and will be presented again by Des Cahill.

RTÉ’s head of sport Ryle Nugent said: “The GAA Championship plays a pivotal role in RTÉ Sport’s schedule each summer across all platforms and this year is no exception.

“We look forward to once again capturing the excitement, skill and emotion of the Championship that defines the summer for GAA fans.”
