All four provincial senior football championship finals will be shown live as part of this weekend’s GAA coverage.

RTE's double-bill on Saturday will begin with Limerick making their first Munster SFC final appearance since 2010, against holders Kerry in Killarney. Then after that, it’s Kildare taking on Dublin at Croke Park in their second successive Leinster SFC decider.

As well as three minor matches across the weekend, TG4 will also show the Leinster Ladies SFC final between rivals Meath and Dublin, which acts as a curtain-raiser ahead of the Delaney Cup showpiece at GAA headquarters.

GAAGO will again stream action from the Tailteann Cup as Leitrim play host to Antrim in Carrick-on-Shannon.

The first televised match of the day on Sunday is RTE's airing of Roscommon and Galway in the Connacht SFC final at Pearse Stadium as the counties cross swords on this stage for the fifth time in seven years.

Then the RTE and BBC cameras are live from Clones for the Ulster SFC's biggest fixture, with Derry aiming to end their 24-year wait to be crowned Anglo-Celt Cup champions but they must overcome Declan Bonner's Donegal if they are to do so.
