The sun is shining, the ground is hardening, summer is almost upon us. That should signal the return of the GAA Championship season, however, that unfortunately is not the case.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the GAA season as we know it is canceled for 2020 though there still remains a slight chance that we will see some action in the later months of the year.
No championship season is complete without our weekly fix of The Sunday Game with Joanne Cantwell joined by some of the most high profile names in the GAA circles to bring us live coverage and analysis of the games we all love.
While that won’t be happening for some time to come, The Sunday Game will return with a different feel beginning this Sunday (May 10th).
In what is usually the highlights show on a Sunday evening, Des Cahill will be joined by a familiar panel of stars to look back at some classic moments in championship history while they will be also keeping us up to date with the latest developments and checking in with happenings around the country.
To celebrate, RTÉ have released a spine-tingling and emotive promo video to remind us that this too shall pass.
