SKY SPORTS WILL broadcast the glamour All-Ireland hurling qualifier meeting between Tipperary and Kilkenny or Galway on Saturday July 5th.

But there will be no televised coverage of next Saturday’s Leinster SHC semi-final replay between Kilkenny and Galway as the broadcaster had already planned to cover the Ulster football semi-final tie between Armagh and Monaghan.

It is understood that it is highly unlikely that RTÉ will produce a web-only broadcast of the Kilkenny-Galway Leinster semi-final replay.

RTÉ are set to produce live televised coverage of the All-Ireland senior hurling round 1 qualifier between Clare against Wexford in Ennis on July 5th while they will televise next Sunday’s Leinster football semi-final double-header from Croke Park.

Saturday June 28th
Waterford v Laois, Walsh Park, 7pmSunday June 29th
