There’s an All-Ireland intermediate championship final spot up for grabs first as Meath and Roscommon go head-to-head (throw-in 1pm, live on TG4) before the two senior last four battles go down for decision.

11-time All-Ireland winners Cork meet Ulster champions Donegal in the first of the two semi-finals (throw-in 2.45pm, live on TG4) making for an interesting battle.

Both have looked strong through the summer to date and with some of the best forwards in the country on each side, it’s sure that this shoot-out will come right down to the wire.

Ephie Fitzgerald’s Rebels exited at this stage last year so they’ll be hoping to make amends and appear in Croke Park once again, while Donegal — bidding for a first-ever All-Ireland senior title — will be looking to also take that crucial last step.

Holders Dublin and Connacht champions Galway then face off for the second coveted All-Ireland senior final spot on offer, with throw-in for that one 4.30pm (live on TG4).

The sides have had two interesting clashes in 2018 so far, going head-to-head twice in Division 1 of the Lidl Ladies National Football League.

Stephen Glennon’s Tribeswomen came out on top in their round robin fixture, but the Sky Blues edged past them thanks to a late, late goal and subsequent one-point win in the semi-final.
