Horse racing

One of the highlights of the summer flat racing season in the UK, the Newmarket July Festival begins on Thursday. The three-day meeting includes several high-profile races, including the Princess of Wales’ Stakes, July Stakes, Falmouth Stakes and July Cup. Thursday-Saturday, UTV & Virgin Media

Soccer

The Republic of Ireland women’s team were unfortunate to be added to a four-team Euro 2025 qualifying group with three sides all ranked in the top six in the world. Four losses later, it’s been a steep learning curve, but one, hopefully, that will stand to the squad. For now, though, there’s no let-up — Game Five is against Euro 2022 champions England in Carrow Road, Norwich. Friday, RTÉ & UTV

Gaelic football

There are two huge games in Croke Park at the weekend — namely the All-Ireland senior football semi-finals. However, the curtain-raiser to Saturday’s Armagh v Kerry game is also a significant clash — at least for two counties. Down and Laois meet in the Tailteann Cup final at headquarters. Now in its third season, the second-tier competition has been slowly gaining traction, and now looks to be viewed as a serious competition by the competing counties. Saturday, RTÉ
