It is that time of year where the best of the best compete in the club championships to determine who will win their provincial title and go through to the All-Ireland series.
Connacht, Ulster and Munster all have their semi-finals this weekend while all four Leinster quarter-finals take place on Sunday.
In the bid to become All-Ireland champions, 20 teams will become ten as some of the biggest names in club Gaelic football (and some new teams) face off across the country.
Dr Crokes, St Brigids, Corofin and St Vincent’s have all won the All-Ireland in the last five years – and that quartet are all in action this coming weekend.
2003 champions Nemo Rangers are also involved as they take on Adare. The Limerick side are playing in the Munster SFC for the first time after winning their first ever county title after a dramatic victory over Newcastle West.

Also in Munster, there is a repeat of last year’s clash between Dr Crokes and Kilmurry-Ibrickane. The Killarney men won on a scoreline of 1-14 to 0-08 last year and will expect to overcome the Clare men in front of a home crowd on Sunday.
The action kicks off on Saturday evening as Kilcar take on Slaughtneil in the Ulster semi-final for a spot in the decider against either Cavan Gaels or Derrygonnelly Harps.
The Derry side have lost two of the last four All-Ireland finals – while Castlebar, who have lost of other two recent deciders are also in action.
Portlaoise take on Kildare kingpins Moorefield in another stand-out fixture in an action-packed weekend of action.
