Good news for those of you who can’t make it to MacHale Park on Sunday – TG4 announced earlier today that they’ll be showing the county final between Castlebar Mitchels and Ballintubber live on their GAA Beo programme. Transmission starts on Sunday at 3pm, ahead of the 3.30pm throw-in at McHale Park.
This news suits me, I have to admit, as I wasn’t planning to travel west this weekend. I’ll be heading instead up the road to Parnell Park on Saturday afternoon, where the Dublin SFC semi-finals are being played. Plunketts play Jude’s in the curtain-raiser at 3.30pm with Vincents, who are now clear favourites to retain their county title, taking on Ballyboden at 5.15pm.
