Sligo and Galway will do battle for a place in the Connacht GAA Football Senior Championship final at Markievicz Park at 6.00pm on Saturday evening.

Last Sunday’s semi-final at Pearse Stadium, Galway finished in a 1-10 to 1-10 draw after Galway staged a stunning comeback to recover from a 1-8 to 0-2 half-time lead to force a replay with an injury-time free.

Elsewhere, the GAA Football Senior Championship Round 1 Qualifier replay between Kildare and Antrim has been fixed for 7.00pm in Casement Park next Saturday night.

The GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Phase 1 Qualifier clash between Antrim and Carlow will act as the curtain raiser of an enticing double header, with the hurling due to throw in at 5.00pm.

There is further hurling action at Headquarters this Saturday, with a triple bill of finals sure to whet the appetite of small ball aficionados.

The action gets underway at 12.00pm when Donegal and Longford meet with the Lory Meagher Cup at stake.

The Nicky Rackard Cup final between Armagh and London follows immediately after at 2.00pm, while the main event, the Christy Ring Cup final clash between Kerry and Westmeath, starts at 4.00pm.

On Sunday, Kerry meet Limerick at Fitzgerald Stadium at 2.00pm in the Munster GAA football final, while Kilkenny’s ‘drive for five’ continues with a Leinster final encounter with Galway at 4.00pm in Croke Park.

Meanwhile, the GAA has also confirmed times, dates and venues for the upcoming GAA Football All-Ireland Round 2 Qualifiers.

Dublin, beaten by Meath in the Leinster GAA semi-final on Sunday, will take on Tipperary in Croke Park at 6.00pm on Saturday, July 10.

Last year's All-Ireland semi-finalists, Cork, are in action against Cavan at Páirc Uí Choimh on the same day, the game having a 7.00pm throw-in.

In the GAA Hurling All-Ireland Qualifiers Phase 2, Anthony Daly's Dublin will take on Clare at Croke Park in the curtain raiser to the footballers' clash with Tipperary. Daly faces his native county in the first game of a double header which throws in at 4.00pm.
