The annual clash between Scotland and Ireland’s native sports, when Scotland's national shinty team takes on Ireland's national hurling team, will be broadcast on BBC ALBA.
Ireland will welcome Scotland at Athy, Co. Kildare in the first test of this year's shinty/hurling international series taking place on Saturday 22 October. Full match coverage will be provided by BBC ALBA on Sunday 23 October at 4pm.
The return leg will be played on Saturday 29 October when Scotland will host their Irish counterparts at Bight Park in Inverness.
Captain Norman Campbell is hoping that he can lead the national team to success this year after last year’s title went to Ireland who won 7-21 to 5-23 on aggregate.
The programme will also have a special feature with Scotland manager Drew McNeill, highlights from last year’s Internationals as well as a feature looking ahead to the new six-part shinty entertainment series ‘Caman’ to feature on BBC ALBA later in the year.
Coverage of this hurling-shinty international series will be provided by mneTV for BBC ALBA.
