RTÉ have announced they will be showing live coverage of Tipperary's clash with Clare followed by Dublin taking on Longford in this weekend's football and hurling championship fixtures.

RTÉ confirmed it's decision to broadcast Tipperary v Clare at 2PM on Sunday ahead of Limerick v Waterford, with both Munster hurling championship games due to start at the same time.

The game is a must-win for Tipp if they are to qualify for the Munster final in the new round-robin championship format, having drawn two and lost one of their opening three games.

The game in Thurles will be followed by Dublin's match with Longford, with throw-in at Croke Park at 4PM.

Longford's upset win over Meath earned them the semi-final date with the Dubs, while Carlow take on Laois in the other Leinster semi-final.

Sky Sports meanwhile will provide live coverage of Meath's All-Ireland qualifying match with Tyrone in Navan on Saturday, followed by the final weekend of action in the Leinster hurling championship round-robin as Kilkenny take on Wexford at 7PM.
