As the GAA prepares to mark the 125th Anniversary of its foundation in Thurles on November 1st, TG4 has unveiled a special day of GAA programmes schedule to mark the occasion. The station has dedicated most of its schedule on that day to Gaelic Games with viewers getting the opportunity to see live GAA action as well as a mouth-watering wide range of GAA-themed content in other programme types including documentaries, profiles and music. The main live match coverage on this special day will be from Semple Stadium for the AIB Munster Club Hurling Quarter-Final with the Cork champions taking on their Tipperary counterparts in what will undoubtedly be an exciting encounter. There will be special events happening at Thurles during the day to mark the 125th Anniversary of the GAA and TG4 presenter Micheál Ó Domhnaill will have all the latest news from there.

The live match coverage will be complimented by a wide range of specially commissioned/selected programmes with a GAA theme including: Sam Maguire documentary, Micheál O’Hehir, Top 50 GAA Football Goals, Top 50 GAA Hurling Goals, Ringy, the Cormac McAnallen tribute programme, the first showing of the new John 3:7 documentary and a specially commissioned edition of the traditional music series Geantraí with songs and tunes with a GAA ring to them.
