NEXT WEEKEND’S LIVE GAA club action on TV will cover games in Leinster, Connacht and Tipperary.

The action commences on RTÉ 2 on Saturday evening with the Leinster senior club hurling quarter-final as Laois champions Clough-Ballacolla entertain Wexford kingpins Rapparaees.

Throw-in at the Portlaoise venue is 5.30pm. Clough-Ballacolla recently completed back-to-back Laois senior title wins, while Rapparees lifted the Wexford crown in September for the first time in 43 years.

Then on Sunday afternoon there is the usual double-bill of action on TG4. First up their cameras are in Dr Hyde Park in Roscommon for a Connacht senior club football semi-final.

Padraig Pearses are the Roscommon title holders, winning their second final in three seasons last month, and they will meet Mountbellew-Moylough at 1.30pm. The newly-crowned Galway champions ended a 35-year wait for success in their county last Sunday and then followed it up yesterday with a triumph at the expense of Leitrim’s Ballinamore in the Connacht opener.

After that next Sunday afternoon, it’s the second instalment in Tipperary as the senior hurling final replay is on at 3.15pm in Semple Stadium.

Loughmore-Castleiney face off against Thurles Sarsfields after it finished 2-17 to 0-23 last time out. Loughmore tasted glory on the football front yesterday and were rescued by a Liam McGrath point to drag them level late on in the drawn game.
