Westmeath face Monaghan at 1.15pm in the Masters Shield Final, followed by the IRISH TV Gaelic Masters final between Galway and Tyrone at 3.15pm.

It is the second year in succession that the Masters final will be broadcast live on IRISH TV on SKY 191, Freesat 400, Eircom’s eVision 191 and online at www.irishtv.ie/live

Galway are looking to make it four in a row on Saturday while Tyrone has never won the competition. Tyrone Masters qualified for the final with a 2-11 to 1-10 win over Cavan in a hard fought encounter at Truagh on October 24.

Westmeath and Monaghan will meet in the Masters Shield final. Westmeath progressed to the final with a 1-17 to 1-13 (replay) win over Antrim last Saturday.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing,” said Chairperson of the Gaelic Masters Association, John Pat Sheridan.

“We are delighted to be working with Irish TV again this year as they understand our ethos, aims and passion for football. The Gaelic Masters like Irish TV is growing in popularity every year.”

The Gaelic Masters is a competitive inter-county tournament for footballers over 40 to compete after their sporting careers have come to an end.

The competition has seen some great players line out for previous tournaments including former Footballer of the Year Peter Canavan, former Mayo All-Star Kenneth Mortimer and Dublin legend Joe McNally.

IRISH TV are delighted to be supporting the Gaelic Masters again this year and we are excited to be bringing the finals of this great competition to sports fans at home and around the world,” said Irish TV CEO Pierce O’Reilly.

Both games can be viewed on IRISH TV with coverage from 1pm on Saturday 7th November on SKY channel 191, all Free to Air boxes, Freesat 400, Eircom’s eVision 191 and online at www.irishtv.ie/live
