SKY SPORTS HAS unveiled its 2022 GAA championship schedule.

Coverage begins on Saturday, 16 April, with the Leinster hurling clash of Wexford and Galway, and the Ulster football meeting of Fermanagh and Tyrone.

They’ll also show the controversial Munster football semi-final showdown between Cork and Kerry.

Sky Sports Arena will broadcast 20 fixtures — 14 of those exclusive to Sky — with Gráinne McElwain returning as presenter this year. She’ll be joined by Peter Canavan, Kieran Donaghy and Jim McGuinness for football punditry, while Ollie Canning, Jamesie O’Connor and JJ Delaney will provide insights and analysis when it comes to hurling.

Commentators Dave McIntyre and Mike Finnerty, with co-commentary from Nicky English and Paul Earley, complete the line-up.
