GAA Guide: Here's all the Championship matches live on TV this weekend
Longford take on Fermanagh in the first round of the Tailteann Cup proper a little later on today.
THE Tailteann Cup first round clash of Fermanagh and Longford will be streamed live on the GAAGO service on Saturday week.
The GAA today announced fixture details for the first round proper of the inaugural Tailteann Cup on May 28-29, with four games in the northern section pencilled in for the Saturday and three ties in the southern section taking place on the Sunday.
The latter will include the winners of this weekend’s two preliminary round showFermanaghs between Wexford/Offaly and Wicklow/Waterford, with venue details to be determined by whoever prevails between Wexford and Offaly in Enniscorthy this Sunday.
Fermanagh were on the end of a chastening defeat to Galway last time out. In that Connacht semi-final clash, the Tribesmen ran riot, winning by a score of 4-20 to 0-09.
Longford struggled just as badly in the Ulster Championship, losing their quarter-final clash with Longford by 13 points.
Here's everything you need to know ahead of today's game:
The two finalists of the Joe McDonagh get back into the Liam MacCarthy this year,” McCann said.
“I actually believe the Tailteann Cup would be a worthwhile competition based on the format of the Joe McDonagh, I think it would be great and every lower-ranked team would benefit.
“You could have four or five Championship matches, there’d be a bit of an incentive and you’d have a wild card entry into the Sam Maguire and everybody would look forward to it.
“But the problem you have is you are in a competition where you’re guaranteed one game, you could be knocked out and it doesn’t develop a team at all.”
It is another weekend of GAA action and there are plenty of fixtures live on your screen - including five finals!
Saturday's action kicks off with Laois and Galway in the All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship before Fermanagh and Longford go head to head in the Tailteann Cup.
