Now that the inter-county season is done and dusted for another year, attentions turn towards the club championships, some of which are well underway...

There are three county finals down for decision on Sunday - Rapparees go into the Wexford SHC final, hoping to end a 43-year wait for the Dr RJ Bowe Cup. Standing in their way are St Anne's of Rathangan, a side who were beaten in the 2014 and 2019 deciders and haven't won the title since 2000.

Kilmoyley will defend their Kerry SHC crown against St Brendan's at Austin Stack Park, while, two sides that have dominated the county scene over the last 15 years, holders Mount Leinster Rangers do battle with St Mullin's in the Carlow SHC final. The Waterford SHC quarter-finals take place as eight-in-a-row chasing Ballygunner face Fourmilewater.

But there’s also plenty of football action with Kerry SFC newcomers Spa meeting Dr Crokes just days after claiming intermediate glory.

Here’s a rundown of the club matches that are happening this weekend...
