They are. Galway v Dublin will be on RTE 2. What the chatter is about now is how they just announced yesterday that they'll also show Clare v Tipp free to air on the RTE News Now channel.

The news channel hasn't previously been used this year (or I don't think any other year) for live GAA, and the argument is that the two Leinster matches have more riding on them than Clare v Tipp does, as the result there could turn out to be irrelevant anyway.

Really, Limerick v Tipp was a non event, Cork v Tipp a non event 2nd half, Waterford v Tipp was an ok, not a spectacular game, Leinster has provided proper entertainment and the unexpected this year. Wexford and Dublin would both beat that Tipp team, Antrim and Carlow at give Tipp a right go at home home also and Wexford and Dublin would probably Waterford. Wexford were up with Clare until the last 10 mins in 2022. Waterford haven't won an All Ireland in 64 years, Cork in 19 years, Tipp won 3 All Ireland's in 23 years, Clare 1 All Ireland since 97. Hardly dominant, without Limerick's recent form. Tipp won 1 game in last 11 in Munster, Waterford were virtually winless for 3 years in Munster and Clare haven't won Munster in 25 years. All a bit starry eyed with Munster as usual.

Replying To Afinestick96:  "Sick of hearing about how great Munster hurling is. How have Kilkenny beaten Clare and reach the AI final the last 2 years if Munster is so far ahead? Leinster only gets a bare mention on the Sunday game and any of the main podcasts."
Also the 3rd place teams from Munster in the last 2 years have been knocked out by Galway in the quarter-finals. That doesn't indicate a huge difference in quality.

Replying To ExiledInWex:  "Yes and that being so I saw it on Saturday night any time a Kilkenny player hit the deck for any reason their supporters were shouting for frees."
Well, they had a good ally in Murphy. Great man for technical fouls too. Didn't get to the chapter on steps obviously :-)

It's not, just an ongoing campaign to protect the Munster Championship. Wexford would beat Tipperary and Waterford.

And that's the weakest Kilkenny team in about 20 years and they still managed to send Clare home with their tails between their legs two AI semi finals in a row.
