Ireland V France Will ALSO Be Shown On Giant Screens In Croke Park

In a truly historic move, the second half of Sunday's match between the Republic of Ireland and France will be shown on giant screens in Croke Park before Leinster's SFC double-header.

In a move designed to accommodate fans of soccer and GAA, soccer will be shown on the big screens in the stadium for the first time ever. So it's kind of a big deal.

The Leinster Council had already decided to delay this Sunday's Kildare v Westmeath and Dublin v Meath games from 2pm and 4pm respectively to 4.15pm and 6.35pm, but now they've gone a huge step further.

According to, if Ireland V France goes to penalties the GAA games will go ahead and the big screens will revert back to in-stadium footage, but fans will have the option to watch the Euros on smaller screens at the back of the stands or underneath the terrace.

In short, sports fans, it's gonna be one hell of a weekend.
