THE INTER-COUNTY season has drawn to a close but the concluding stages of the club championships around the country will ensure that GAA fans will get plenty of TV coverage coming their way over the next few weeks.

The new arrival into the GAA club broadcast market, eir Sport, will televise five games this weekend covering Dublin, Kilkenny and Donegal.

In addition they have today announced that the Kerry senior football semi-finals will be broadcast live next weekend.

The double-header of action at Fitzgerald Stadium in Killarney, sees reigning All-Ireland club kingpins Dr Crokes take on West Kerry at 4.45pm on Saturday 7 October, after the opening semi-final between Kerins O’Rahilly’s and South Kerry at 3pm.

Dr Crokes can call on the likes of Colm Cooper, Fionn Fitzgerald and this year’s Kerry captain Johnny Buckley against the divisional outfit who have current Kerry senior panelist Briain Ó Beaglaoich in their ranks.

Kerry trio David Moran, Barry John Keane and Jack Savage will be in action for their club Kerins O’Rahilly’s against a South Kerry team that have county squad members in Killian Young, Mark Griffin and Bryan Sheehan.

TG4 are the established presence in the autumn and winter coverage of GAA club games, and after the All-Ireland ladies football championship finished last weekend, they return to club coverage this Sunday.
