All-Ireland Senior Hurling Semi-Finals Live on BBC iPlayer, BBC Two NI, BBC Sport Online

BBC Sport NI will have live coverage of this weekend’s All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Semi-Finals on BBC iPlayer, BBC Two Northern Ireland, streamed live on the BBC Sport NI website and on the BBC Sport App. It’s the first time the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Semi-Finals will be available to a Network BBC television audience across the UK.

A host of All-Star players, All-Ireland winners and hurling legends will be on hand to analyse all the action over the two games.

A place in the showpiece final awaits later in the month as holders Limerick take on Galway on Saturday 8 July in the first semi-final before last year’s beaten finalists Kilkenny go up against Clare on Sunday 9 July.

On Saturday, (Limerick v Galway) former Clare midfielder and four-time All Star, Jamesie O’ Connor – with two All-Irelands, three Munster titles and a Hurler of Year title to this name – joins Limerick’s three-time All Star Ciaran Carey - the former Limerick centre back famed for scoring an epic injury-time point in the 1996 Munster semi-final against Clare - alongside current Tipperary manager, Liam Cahill in studio.

Thomas Niblock introduces the action on Saturday from 5.30pm with throw-in at 6pm from Croke Park as Galway look to overturn last year’s semi-final result to Limerick. Sarah Mulkerrins provides all the latest news and updates from pitchside while Oisin Langan will be on commentary alongside Ulster Hurling legend Neil McManus who has recently retired after a glittering 17-year career.

On Sunday, (Kilkenny v Clare) four-time All-Ireland winner and four-time All Star, former Kilkenny corner back, Paul Murphy, joins Wexford captain and 2019 All Star Lee Chin for analysis of the game alongside Neil McManus in studio.

Oisin Langan is in the commentary box and is joined on Sunday by Jamesie O’Connor for the eagerly awaited repeat of last year’s semi-final. Thomas introduces the action from 3.30pm for the 4pm throw-in with Sarah pitchside.
