Here is our selection of three events that we feel will give you the best of sport from across Ireland and around the world this weekend, together with all the broadcast details.

 

 

GRAND SLAM DESTINY ON THE LINE IN PARIS

FRANCE VS IRELAND GUINNESS SIX NATIONS

When it’s on – Saturday afternoon with kick-off in Paris at 4:45 PM our time.

If you are going – It promises to be a special occasion but you would need to be very well connected at this stage to grab a ticket

If you are watching – Virgin media One’s coverage led by Joe Molloy will be on air at 4 PM

Why it will be worth it – The win over Wales was impressive and with England falling again to Scotland, the prospect of another Grand Slam is becoming a real prospect.  Oh, apart from getting past France in Paris.  The bookies have it as a three-point game with the edge to the home side but could this be the moment for Joey Carbery to shine his brightest?

 

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CLUB

AIB ALL IRELAND CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS

When it’s on Saturday afternoon with Ballygunner against Ballyhale Shamrocks first in the Hurling  at 3 PM and then Kilkoo against Kilmacud Crokes in the Football at 5 PM

If you are going – Tickets priced at €25 for adults and €5 for kids are available at GAA.ie or in SuperValu and Centra stores across the country

If you are watching – TG4 will be on air from 2-35

Why it will be worth it – The most onomatopeic set of fixtures you have ever seen, and the joy that club finals bring are unmissable if you are among the lucky members of the clubs involved.  The hurling in particular could be a game for the ages and don’t rule out Ballyhale no matter how far behind they might be.  TJ Reid has a habit of miraculous comebacks.

 

SUPERBOWL SUNDAY

CINCINNATI BENGALS AGAINST THE LA RAMS

When it’s on –  Sunday at 1130

If you are going – Tickets are available.  It’s just that you’ll need to get to LA and have €3,800 a head rolling around in loose change

If you are watching – Neil Reynolds will lead off a Sky Sports spectacular from 10 AM on Sunday night.  It’s also on the BBC if you are not a regular fan.

Why it will be worth it – The Stadium alone is worth staying up for.  Neither side was favoured to make it here, in fact, the Bengals of two years ago were as likely as Wicklow to make an All Ireland Hurling Final.  Then Joe Burrow came along and changed everything.
