The prime league game between Dublin and Kerry at Croke Park this Sunday will be broadcast live on eir Sport 1.

The GAA's Central Competition Controls Committee left it open for the game to be televised by fixing it for a later afternoon start (4pm). The majority of Sunday afternoon games will start at either 2pm or 2.30pm.

The game was moved from a Saturday night slot because of a Garda request as the Ireland/Scotland Six Nations rugby match takes place on Saturday afternoon while a 'Rally For Life' is also due to be held in the city centre.

Sunday coverage is usually the domain of TG4 but with eir Sport originally due to show the game last weekend, they have retained the right to show the eagerly-anticipated clash.

eir Sport will also broadcast Tyrone's game with Donegal at Healy Park in Omagh on Saturday evening.

There will be four games broadcast by TG4 on Sunday with the meeting between Kevin Walsh's Galway and Monaghan (12.30pm throw-in) and the Division 1B meeting of the All-Ireland hurling champions and Limerick 2.30pm throw-in) being shown live.

They will also have deferred coverage of Brian Cody's Kilkenny against Wexford and Kildare's clash with Mayo in football.
