Weekend GAA predictions

Who will beat who in hurling and football as we look ahead to a fascinating weekend of GAA action with huge stakes

OurGame takes a gaze into the crystal ball to predict the results of the biggest GAA games this weekend.

Saturday May 27


Louth v Cork, Pairc Tailteann, 3.0

A huge game for both sides in terms of qualification down the road. Louth won the corresponding League game by a goal in March but Brian Hurley’s return tips the balance slightly in Cork’s favour.

Verdict: Cork by one

Armagh v Westmeath, Box-It Athletic Grounds, 4.45 – GAAGO

Armagh are challenged with bouncing back from Ulster final heartbreak but they can do so on home soil with Rian O’Neill set to hurt last year’s Tailteann Cup winners.

Verdict: Armagh by seven

Derry v Monaghan, Celtic Park, 7.0 – GAAGO

A repeat of their Ulster clash which Derry won convincingly, 1-21 to 2-10, four weeks ago. This should be tighter with the Farney having a point to prove but Ciaran Meenagh’s men still look a cut above.

Verdict: Derry by three


Carlow v Offaly, Croke Park, 4.45 – RTÉ2

Carlow beat a second-string Offaly by 18 points when they met two weeks ago but this will be a totally different kettle of fish. It should be tight down the stretch but Eoghan Cahill may just tip the balance for the Faithful.

Verdict: Offaly by three
