First up it’s an all-Connacht affair with Galway and Mayo going head-to-head for a place in the All-Ireland semi-final (throw-in 3pm, deferred showing on TG4 at 7pm).

The sides last met in the provincial decider with the Tribeswomen coming out on top and since then Stephen Glennon’s charges have gone from strength to strength, topping their group comfortably.

Peter Leahy’s side on the other hand have shown true resilience to recover from the loss of 12 players from the panel, convincingly beating Cavan before coming close against reigning All-Ireland champions Dublin at the same venue the last day.

The Dubs themselves are in action in the second clash of the day, opposition coming in the form of Munster finalists Kerry (throw-in 5pm, live on TG4).

This meeting comes as a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland semi-final which Mick Bohan’s charges won on a scoreline of 5-10 to 0-11 before they saw off Mayo in the decider.

Saturday is another busy day in the ladies football calendar with two TG4 All-Ireland senior championship relegation play-offs down for decision, and there’s an All-Ireland intermediate championship quarter-final double-header fixed for Moate.
