    Hello and welcome to the Irish Times live blog. It's time to hand over some silverware - we're not allowing for any drawn matches although they seem to be pretty common this summer - in Munster and Leinster.

    First up it's the Munster Senior Football Championship final at Pairc Ui Chaoimh as perennial rivals Cork and Kerry square off. Ulster champions Monaghan and Armagh meet in a replay of last Sunday's drawn match, this time in Clones.

    Then it's off to headquarters for the Lienster Hurling final between Dublin and Kilkennmy.
