ALL EYES WILL be on Thurles this Sunday as Dublin, Waterford, Cork and Galway do battle for places in the All-Ireland hurling semi-finals.

And don’t worry, football fans, there’s qualifier action too.

Here’s all the TV and radio coverage that you can catch.



Thank GAA It’s Friday returns on, emmm, Friday at 8.30pm featuring Waterford captain Kevin Moran and Dublin’s Danny Sutcliffe before the two go head-to-head in Semple Stadium on Sunday.

Galway’s Iggy Clarke discusses the dual demands of juggling the priesthood with life as Allstar hurler, while Seamus Harnedy’s parents give us the tour of their club, St Ita’s.

On RTÉ Radio 1, The Championship returns with Brian Carthy at 10pm.

If it’s football qualifier action you seek on Saturday, Sky Sports 3 is the place to be all afternoon. Rachel Wyse and Brian Carney will present coverage of both Round 4A clashes from 4.30pm.

Damian Lawlor is on commentary for Westmeath v Fermanagh (5pm), and that’s followed immediately by the meeting of Cork and Kildare (7pm) with Dave McIntyre and Paul Earley in the box. Analysis will come from Senan Connell, James Horan and Peter Canavan.

Then it’s over to Saturday Sport on RTÉ Radio 1 for Cork v Kildare with Brian Carthy on commentary and John Casey on analysis. C103 also have local commentary in Cork.
