All eyes will be on Semple Stadium on Sunday as old rivals Limerick and Clare face off, with the winner taking the last remaining Munster semi-final slot.

It's do or die on the day, with a shootout to decide the victor if added time fails to separate the sides.

The game will be shown live on RTÉ Two on Sunday with throw-in at 3.45pm.

Brian Lohan's men will be looking to redeem themselves after last year's heavy defeat at the hands of the Shannonsiders, but John Kiely's side will be eager to one up their nearest neighbours once again.

Clare will be carrying heavy losses as John Conlon and Colm Galvin are both out due to injury, while Podge Collins opted to line out for the Banner footballers instead.

The winner will face the challenge of Tipperary in the Munster semi-final on November 1st, while Cork and Waterford will play on October 31st in Thurles.

The Clare footballers will also be in action this weekend, as they welcome Armagh to Cusack Park in Ennis with deferred coverage of the match being shown on TG4 on Saturday afternoon.

Fresh after their win over Fermanagh last week, Colm Collins will be hoping to continue their charge for promotion from Division Two, but it will be a big ask considering the Northerner's sit second from the top, just behind leaders Roscommon.

A 2pm thrown-in will also see a big match up in the Division One football as Kerry host Donegal in Austen Stack Park.

Declan Bonner's side will be looking to claw back a two point deficit, with Kerry given little breathing room at the top.

Dublin and Galway are also looking to close in on a League title, with their game throwing-in at 2pm on Sunday and live coverage on TG4.

Mayo have found themselves in need of points to tear themselves away from the bottom end of the table, facing Tyrone in MacHale Park on Sunday, while Monaghan take on Meath, who go to Clones in search of their first point of the season.

On Saturday, TG4 will be showing live coverage of Cavan against Roscommon while Kildare welcome Westmeath to Newbridge and Fermanagh play Laois in the day's remaining Division Two fixtures.

The Leinster Hurling quarter-final between Dublin and Laois, Croke Park's first fixture since March, will also be shown on Sky Sports with throw-in at 6pm.
