GAA fans heading to Croke Park for the Leinster semi-final double header will be able to catch the second half of Ireland's last 16 showdown with France on the stadium's big screens.

Shortly after Ireland's dramatic, late triumph over the Italians last night, the GAA announced that the throw-in times for the games between Kildare and Westmeath and the Dubs clash with the Meath would be altered.

The Kildare-Westmeath game was scheduled to begin at 2pm, the same time as the soccer in Lyon, but will now take place at 4.15 while the second game will throw-in at 6.35pm.
