CHAMPIONS CLARE MAKE their summer bow on Sunday when they take on Cork in a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland hurling final.

It’s the standout fixture of a busy weekend with four fixtures on Saturday, and a further five to follow on Sunday.

The Sky Sports cameras will be in Wexford Park this weekend as Leinster champions Dublin look to bounce back from a disappointing league campaign and hit the ground running against Wexford.

And there’s another RTÉ double-header to look forward to on Sunday. The Ulster football quarter-final between Monaghan and Tyrone throws in at 2pm, followed by that tasty Munster hurling semi as Clare and Cork do battle for the right to face Limerick in the decider.
