The GAA has confirmed fixture details for the majority of the upcoming All-Ireland football and hurling championship games and the conclusion to the Allianz Football League.

Venues for championship games in Leinster have yet to be confirmed, with the Leinster Council deciding to wait and see what Covid-19 restrictions are in place closer to the time. 

The All-Ireland hurling semi-finals will take place on 28 and 29 November with the football last-four clashes on 5 and 6 December.

The Munster hurling and Connacht football finals take centre stage on Sunday 15 November, the day after the Leinster hurling final.

All Munster hurling matches will take place at neutral venues.

The Leinster football decider takes place at Croke Park on the centenary anniversary of Bloody Sunday, 21 November, which will be marked at HQ.

The Ulster and Munster football finals are both on Sunday 22 November.

The Joe McDonagh Cup final is on the same day as the hurling final, 13 December, six days before the football final, which is on Saturday 19 December.

The final two rounds of the football league will be completed over two weekends 17-18 and 24-25 of October, with an equal split of games between Saturday and Sunday.

The Division 2 meeting of Westmeath and Laois and Division 4 game between Wicklow and Antrim both throw in at 2pm on Saturday 17, which will make them the first competitive inter-county games to be played in over seven months. 

On the same day, the Dublin footballers will play their first league match in Parnell Park since 2010 when they face Meath in Division 1 and RTÉ Sport will televise the Division 2 meeting of Armagh and Roscommon. 

The Division 2A, 2B and 3A hurling finals all take place on 18 October while the Clare-Limerick Munster SHC quarter-final on 25 October is doubling up as the Division 1 final. Donegal beat Armagh in the 3A final in March.

Meanwhile the Government has confirmed that €15m will be made available to the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association to run off their inter-county championships. 

The funding was approved today and is separate to the €40m that is to be split between the GAA, FAI and IRFU from the Government's Covid resilience fund

The GAA has already estimated that the running of inter-county championships will cost in the region of €19.5m

"I am very pleased with today’s funding approval of €15m from Minister Michael McGrath which will allow these organisations to run their delayed championships," Minister for Sport Jack Chambers said. 

"The impact of Covid has been felt by all sports organisations and particularly those which depend on the income generated by match tickets.
