The GAA have confirmed throw-in details for this weekend's Allianz Hurling and Football League games.

The hurling semi-finals will take place across Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday evening, last year's beaten finalists Tipperary will host Division 1B winners Limerick, who are looking to reach the league final for the first time in 12 years.

They'll throw in at seven o'clock at Semple Stadium, in what will be a dress rehearsal for their Munster Championship round-robin clash on May 20th.

The other semi-final sees Wexford and Kilkenny face off for the second time in three weeks, with a 2pm throw-in at Innovate Wexford Park. Brian Cody got one over on Davy Fitzgerald when Kilkenny defeated Wexford by three points in the final round of the regular season.

All four Allianz Football League finals will be played this weekend at Croke Park.

The Division 4 final between Carlow and Laois has a three o'clock start on Saturday. It'll be a second meeting between the pair in the space of a week, after Laois defeated their neighbours 1-6 to 0-8 yesterday.

That game will be followed by the Division 3 final at 5pm, with an all-Ulster affair between Armagh and Fermanagh. When the sides met earlier in the campaign, they played out a forgettable 0-7 apiece draw. That result secured promotion for Armagh, with Fermanagh joining them in the decider yesterday, beating promotion rivals Longford by a point.

The Division 1 and 2 finals are down for decision on Sunday at Croker.

First up is the Division 2 meeting of Cavan and Roscommon, with a 2pm start. Both sides secured promotion back to the top tier at the first attempt, following their relegation in 2017.

Two remaining regular season Division 2 games will be played this weekend, with Down hosting Tipperary, and Louth against Drogheda, both matches throwing in at 3pm on Saturday. A win for Meath will see them survive in the Division.

The main event of the weekend is the Division 1 decider at Croke Park with Dublin looking to lift the trophy for the fifth time in six years. They take on Galway at 4pm on Sunday, with Kevin Walsh's Tribesman finishing the regular season unbeaten, including a 0-13 apiece draw with the Dubs just over a week ago.
