On the GAA front, for the second week in a row, every football club game covered in the senior, intermediate and junior championship.

Massive weekend for Kildare footballers and hurlers as David Herity sends his hurlers out in the opening round of the Christy Ring against Roscommon while Cian O'Neill brings his footballers to Carlow to take on Wicklow in the opening round of the Leinster SFC. We interview both managers and give our assessment for the weekend ahead.
