Irish TV, Ireland’s first international TV channel, will broadcast a special two-hour live TV show from the Horse and Jockey Hotel in Tipperary on Wednesday next, September 3 from 8 to 10pm.

The live TV show will air on Sky channel 191, Freesat 400, all free to air boxes, Eircom’s eVision and online at

The live show will include insightful interviews from both camps, expert analysis from top GAA pundits and all the excitement and atmosphere in the built up to the big match.

The Dream For Liam live TV show on September 3 will look at the close links and fierce rivalry between Tipperary and Kilkenny ahead of one of the most eagerly awaited All-Ireland hurling finals in recent memory.

The show will also include some great live music from Tipperary and Kilkenny performers, while the pundits look at the key battles on the pitch and the strengths and weaknesses of both panels.

Tipperary and Kilkenny GAA stalwarts will also take centre stage during the live TV show with former Tipp manager Declan Ryan and former player Joe Hayes among the panellists.

They will be joined on the couch by Kilkenny Celtic Cross holders John Power, Michael Walsh and Michael Kavanagh –  just a few of the top stars set to feature.

“We have followed the progress of both these counties from the very beginning of the year and we wanted to do something special to mark this historic final,” said Irish TV head of programming Malachi Cush.

“Our live shows ahead of the All-Ireland last year attracted a phenomenal audience and we are confident that it will be similar this year.”

Entertainment on the night will be provided by the crème de la crème of musical acts from both counties with the highly regarded folk group The Kilkennys set to rock the house.

Tipperary will be represented on the stage by Louise Morrissey, and traditional music sensations Ceol Trad who are set to have the audience and team dancing all the way to Croke Park.

Lenegdary folk duo Foster and Allen are also set to make a special appearance on the night.

Mick Foster has strong links with Tipperary hurling and can boast a great grandfather who played on the Tipperary winning team in the very first All Ireland in 1888 against Galway in Birr. His cousin Matt Hassett also captained the 1961 winning All Ireland Tipperary team.
