On Sunday, TG4 will trial a ‘picture in picture’ feature during their live coverage of Kilkenny v Waterford. These will show cutaways that feature the major moments from two key other Division 1 hurling matches, Limerick v Offaly and Laois v Dublin.

Before that Croke Park is the focus on Thursday for the All-Ireland senior colleges football and hurling finals, with the prestigious Hogan Cup and Croke Cup titles on offer. There are Kerry, Kildare, Limerick and Kilkenny sides all chasing glory in the deciders as St Brendan’s Killarney take on Naas CBS, before Ardscoil Rís play St Kieran’s Kilkenny.
