THE FIRST MAJOR GAA weekend of the summer is upon us.

Last weekend there were senior club offerings in Wexford, Dublin, Tipperary, Leitrim and Wicklow but the action really intensifies from tonight with counties around the country cranking into gear after the long shutdown enforced by Covid-19.

The only issue for supporters is that restrictions are still in place with the cap at 200 people present for matches – 400 in six Ulster counties – meaning ticket hunts are more frenzied than ever.

There’s going to be a lot of disappointed supporters but the good news is that there are ways of watching the action.

Away from TG4′s continuing excellent coverage and the streaming services being offered by county boards, there are plenty clubs planning on covering games. Let us know in the comments section below what else is being covered.

Here’s a list of senior matches that you can watch over the weekend.
