Just six months after the Christmas All-Ireland finals, the race for both the Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy Cups begins this weekend.

Every senior game is available to view between RTE, Sky Sports, BBC Northern Ireland and the GAAGO service, while the four Ladies NFL finals are being broadcast by TG4.

Saturday sees Sky start with a football quarter-final in Connacht and Munster, with GAAGO streaming the other three matches.

RTE kicks off its coverage on Sunday with the Ulster SFC meeting between Down and Donegal, which is also live on BBC Northern Ireland, before it moves onto the Munster SHC clash between Waterford and Clare.

The three Leinster SFC first round games are on GAAGO.
