The season will begin with exclusive coverage of All-Ireland Football champions Dublin taking on either Carlow or Wexford in the Leinster Senior Championship quarter-final on June 3rd.

2013 All-Ireland Hurling champions Clare take on Limerick in the Munster Championship semi-final on June 4th in the second of Sky Sports’ exclusive Championship games.

Other key fixtures among Sky Sports 20 live summer GAA games are the Leinster Hurling Championship semi-final (June 10th) and two All-Ireland Football quarter-finals (August 5th), with a total of 14 of the station’s games being exclusive this year.

    The GAA is an absolute disgrace not showing Armagh v Tyrone, Dublin v Monaghan on RTE. I gave so many years to the GAA and this is your thanks to me and the multitudes who do not have SKY. I won’t watch those matches in any other house or premises and certainly won’t pay Sky to watch it. Neither will I attend GAA matches while this abomination exists.

      y agree. I work fulltime in service of my country and cannot afford Sky,Eir and all those others who now have bought the rights to sport. When I am not working my main time is spent playing for my club and county at over 40′s(Masters), coaching all levels of underage, marking out pitches, fundraising>>>>>Need I continue? The GAA DO NOT NEED this extra revenue. It is being used for their own agendas and trips abroad

    Shame on the GAA. We are the community who play and watch all the games. Bring in all the revenue and can’t even get to see the games on Rte. DISGRACEFUL.

    Sky are a bunch of crooks who are ripping off the GAA followers in Ireland. During the season, they constantly change the channel for live GAA games. In other words Sky’s real reason is all about selling the bigger bundle of channels using GAA as the bait. Sometimes it was impossible to find correct Sky channel for live GAA as original listing usually changed. It shows their ulterior motive and they definitely have no love for our beautiful games.
