TG4 Announce Jam-Packed GAA Schedule For May

TG4 gaa

TG4 have announced that they will be broadcasting 10 legendary GAA games throughout the month of May, three of which were requests from viewers. 

TG4, alongside RTÉ and Virgin Media, have already been showing a mouth-watering selection of old games amid the current COVID-19 pandemic which has seen all live sport halted, and they are ramping up their coverage next month.

Among the games being shown are the 1988 All-Ireland Hurling Final when Cyril Farrell’s Galway outwitted Babs Keating’s Tipperary thanks to a late Noel Lane goal, as well as the pulsating 2005 football final between Tyrone and Kerry.

The action begins on Sunday, May 3rd with the 1997 Leinster Senior Football semi-final between Kildare and Meath before coverage of the 1996 All-Ireland Ladies Football Final contested by Monaghan and Laois.

The following Sunday, Armagh’s GAA fans will be eager to tune into TG4 for the 2002 All-Ireland football semi-final against Dublin before coverage of the 1988 hurling final.

The first game chosen by viewers was the 2013 All-Ireland football final between Dubin and Mayo and that will be shown on Sunday, May 17th as a warm-up to the 2009 All Ireland hurling final which saw Tipperary and Kilkenny battle it out in the first of their epic final trilogy.

The final weekend will bring the 2009 U21 Hurling semi-final between Clare and Galway with stars such as John Conlon, Joe Canning and David Burke on show, before coverage of that 2005 All-Ireland football final.
