The changes in the GAA’s championship structure have allowed RTÉ to take the opportunity to significantly increase the number of Irish-language commentary matches provided for the 2018 GAA championship.
Commentary options in both Irish and English will be provided from the Super 8 and quarter-final stage onwards, starting this weekend with:
Clare v Wexford: All-Ireland hurling quarter-final, Saturday, Pairc Ui Chaoimh, (3pm) live on RTÉ One
Dublin v Donegal: Super 8, Saturday, Croke Park (7pm), live on RTÉ2
Kilkenny v Limerick: All-Ireland hurling quarter-final, Sunday, Semple Stadium (2pm), live on RTÉ One
Kerry v Galway: Super 8, Sunday, Croke Park (4pm), live on RTÉ One
All the above games are also live on RTÉ Radio 1 and RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta
In total, 13 matches will be provided with dual-language commentary, in comparison to the 10 matches broadcast last year.
The dual-language commentary will be available on Saorview, Sky, eir and Virgin. Details on how to access the Irish-language commentary service are outlined below.
