Hurling is the only show in town this weekend as the All-Ireland finals take centre stage at Croke Park, a fortnight earlier than usual.

Can Limerick claim their first Liam MacCarthy success in 45 long years? Or will Galway make it two All-Ireland titles in-a-row? Those questions should be answered by 5pm on Sunday.

The All-Ireland SHC final is being aired by RTE and Sky with throw-in at 3.30pm.

Galway are also the defending champions in the curtain-raiser in which they meet Kilkenny who are bidding to win the Irish Press Cup for a 22nd time.

TG4 is showing the All-Ireland MHC final with throw-in at 1pm.

On Saturday, RTE have live coverage of the two All-Ireland Senior Camogie semi-finals, with coverage starting at 5.15pm as holders Kilkenny play Galway (5.30) and Cork then take on Tipperary (7.15pm).

Meanwhile, the All-Ireland Ladies IFC semi-final between Sligo and Tyrone (4pm) will be broadcast live on the LGFA's Facebook.
