Watch LIVE FA Cup 3rd Rd on eir sport this weekend

Watch FIVE LIVE FA Cup 3rd round ties on eir sport this weekend.

Join eir sport for what promises to be a bumper weekend of LIVE sporting action on this Saturday and Sunday, January 8th-10th with FIVE FA Cup 3rd round matches and SIX PRO14 games for you to enjoy. 

Dating back to 1872, the FA Cup is the world's oldest and most famous club football tournament and the 3rd round is where it really begins to get interesting as the big boys join the fray.  

It's the stuff of dreams as non-league minnows get the chance to test their skills against some of the world's best players with the chance of causing an upset and writing their names into legend forever.

We've got a tasty line-up with nearly all the Premier League elite in action between Saturday and Sunday including holders Arsenal, who've won the trophy four times in the past seven years, hosting Newcastle on Saturday evening (LIVE from 5.20pm on eir sport 2).

Could we see an upset as last year's beaten finalists Chelsea host League Two side Morecambe on Sunday? (LIVE from 1.20pm on eir sport 2).
