Dublin found themselves a distant second best against Kilkenny

7 July: Three-time All Ireland winner James 'Cha' Fitzpatrick, former Wexford forward Mattie Forde and journalist Jackie Cahill join Jacqui Hurley on the podcast this week.

In Ennis on Saturday, Clare produced a dramatic fightback to earn a replay against Wexford - we look back at yet another great game in the hurling championship and give our verdict ahead of the replay.

Where now for Galway hurling? Tipperary finally won a championship game in Thurles on Saturday night, but the year is over for the 2012 finalists. And in Leinster, Dublin found themselves a distant second best as Kilkenny reasserted their authority over the province.

In football, the start of the farewell to the current Pairc Ui Chaoímh did not go to plan for the home side. Cork produced a distinctly flat performance and were swept aside by Kerry.

We also look at all the football qualifiers played over the weekend and assess the merits of Donegal and Monaghan - the two will contest this year's Ulster football final.
