It's under-20 Football final day in both Munster and Leinster.

Last year's beaten All-Ireland finalists Dublin continue their quest for a third Leinster title in-a-row when they face Offaly at 7.30pm in Portlaoise.

Offaly haven't won a championship at the grade since 1995.

At the same time, Tipperary and Cork clash in the Munster decider at Semple Stadium.

Tipp manager Paddy Christie has opted to stick with the team which started last week's victory against Waterford.

Soccer

Dundalk and Bohemians are both in action in the second round of qualifying for the Europa Conference League later.

Advancing to round three would bring with it a prize money boost of around half-a-million Euro to the clubs.

Bohemians are away to Dudelange for the first leg of their tie, where there's a half-five kick-off in Luxembourg.

1,000 fans will be in attendance in Tallaght Stadium when Dundalk host Levadia Tallinn at 8pm.

Tallinn arrive to Dublin with a squad which boasts nine Estonian internationals and Dundalk boss Vinny Perth says it feels like a "real European tie".

Olympics

The director of the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony has been sacked a day before it's due to take place.

He has been dismissed following an anti-semitic joke he made during a comedy show in the nineties.

President of the Games, Seiko Hashimoto, says there were comments about the Holocaust.

Earlier this week, a composer for the opening ceremony had to resign over bullying allegations.

Irish swimmer Danielle Hill has been given the all clear to represent Ireland at the Olympics.

The Antrim native's participation had been in doubt after she tested positive for Covid-19 in recent weeks.

Hill, who will compete in the freestyle and backstroke, has linked up with the rest of the team in Tokyo.

Golf

Leona Maguire and Stephanie Meadow are in first-round action at golf's fourth women's major of the year this morning - the Evian Championship.

Meadow is level par after four holes in France while Maguire has tee-ed off in the last few minutes.

America's Kristen Gillman is the early leader at two-under through five holes.

Rugby

Hannah Tyrrell says the postponement of the Women's Rugby World Cup was a factor in the timing of her retirement from international rugby.

The 30-year-old has starred for Dublin's ladies footballers this season after calling time on her rugby career.

The World Cup has been pushed back to October of next year due to the pandemic and Tyrrell says she stepped away to give coach Adam Griggs time to find a new out-half ahead of the tournament.
