The coming weekend’s action

I’ve just done a quick scan of all the matches involving the county this coming weekend and it’s a bit of a list. It’s worth, then, providing an overview of what’s on so you can check the diary and see which ones you might be able to make. First up is the double-header at Tuam Stadium on Saturday.

Tickets, tickets, tickets, tickets, tickets
