PROVINCIAL SILVERWARE IS up for grabs in all four provinces over the weekend, while there are All-Ireland club football and hurling semi-finals to look forward to.

Dublin and Kildare will battle it out for O’Byrne Cup glory in Newbridge on Sunday, with a big crowd expected at St Conleth’s Park.

In Ulster, Tyrone are hoping to complete the McKenna Cup four-in-a-row when they tackle Cavan at Armagh’s Athletic Grounds.

And the McGrath Cup decider in Munster is a novel pairing as both Cork and Kerry are absent from the final for the first time since 2008.

In the West, there will be a new winner of the FBD Insurance League following Leitrim’s successes in 2013 and 2014.

Roscommon, who have never won this competition, face a Galway side chasing the title for the first time since 2009.

It’s also semi-finals weekend in the AIB intermediate and junior club football and hurling club championships.
