Super news for GAA fans headed to the Electric Picnic

Fans of both music and GAA - particularly those of a Dublin or Mayo persuasion - can breathe a huge sigh of relief.

They will not be forced to make a choice between soaking up the sounds in Stradbally and watching Saturday’s hotly anticipated All-Ireland SFC semi-final replay.

After the first match ended in a draw, fans of the two counties who were planning to attend Electric Picnic were faced with a terrible choice.

But fear not music-loving GAA supporters, this most eclectic of festivals has you covered.

The match has been added to the Saturday schedule of the Newstalk Lounge in the Mindfield Arena .

The festival organisers ahe aleady arranged to cater for hurling fans, with Irish language tent An Puball Gaeilge screening TG4 coverage of the All-Ireland hurling final on Sunday.

Both screenings are on a first come first served basis though, so we suggest getting the jersey on and heading over good and early.

Enjoy!
