Galway footballer Pádraic Joyce, Sunday Independent GAA Correspondent Damian Lawlor and former Kilkenny hurler Michael Kavanagh join Darren Frehill in this week's podcast.

Limerick and Kilkenny took part in a ferocious All-Ireland semi final on Sunday afternoon. The game took place in dreadful conditions - with the driving rain becoming a huge factor in the second half. A superb Limerick performance was a big part of what was an enthralling encounter, but Kilkenny eventually emerged with a two point win to take their place in their 13th final in 15 seasons.

The line up for the All-Ireland football semi finals was confirmed on Saturday night as Dublin made light work of Monaghan at Croke Park. We look at the components of this Dublin team and ask if they have been truly tested this year.

In the earlier game, Armagh just fell short against Donegal in a tight game in front of a big crowd at headquarters. Donegal will now face Dublin for a place in the All-Ireland final.
