GAA and rugby fans are set for a fixture dilemma this weekend.
With St Patrick’s Day on Sunday, the GAA has decided to play all of this weekend’s National Football League games on Saturday.
This is the same day that Ireland will play their Six Nations decider game in Cardiff against Wales.
The Welsh are going for the Grand Slam and will get it if they beat Ireland in what will be Joe Schmidt’s final Six Nations game.
Ireland can retain the championship if they win but they will also need England to slip up against Scotland later in the day.
Anyway, the Ireland v Wales game kicks off at 2.45pm and that clashes directly with 13 of the Allianz League games – including Laois v Offaly.
John Sugrue’s charges are in Tullamore at 2pm for a game that they must win if they wish to keep their promotion hopes alive.
So fans of both sports will have a decision to make.
