ALL-IRELAND action continues this weekend with the Senior Championship, Tailteann cup and hurling finals filling a jam-packed programme.

Derry’s clash with Armagh is one of the key clashes this weekend, with Derry hoping to make up for their dismal start to the All-Ireland group phase, where they lost to Galway 2-14 to 0-15.

Armagh will be hoping to build on their win against Westmeath at the Athletic Grounds and make up for their Ulster final loss against Donegal.

That game takes pride of place on RTÉ's The Sunday Game this weekend, along with Meath v Kerry.

Elsewhere in the All-Ireland SFC, Roscommon take on Connacht rivals Mayo in their group on Saturday evening with the game being streamed on GAA GO.

Saturday’s clash between Cavan and Dublin is also on the GAA GO platform.

The All-Ireland U20 Hurling final between Offaly and Tipperary is on both TG4 and GAA GO, with Offaly hoping to right last year’s wrongs as they lost to Cork in last year’s decider.

TG4 Spórt will be streaming the hurling finals in Croke Park on Sunday on their YouTube channel, with an Ulster presence in all three matches.

Fermanagh will want to show that the Erne County can progress and grow as a hurling county when they take on Longford in the Lory Meagher Cup final.

Donegal take on Mayo in the Nicky Rackard Cup final having won all five of their games so far in the competition.

Derry will hope to move up to Joe McDonagh status by overcoming Kildare in the Christy Ring Cup final.
