Ex Donegal boss Jimmy McGuinness has joined the Sky GAA team for the 2015 championship.

Sky have also signed nine times Kilkenny All-Ireland winner JJ Delaney as a summer analyst.

Now a performance consultant with Glasgow Celtic, McGuinness guided Donegal to a famous All-Ireland triumph in 2012 - their first in 20 years. He departed following the team's defeat by Kerry in last year's All-Ireland decider.

JJ Delaney is regarded by most hurling commentators as the greatest full back of all time. Having made his championship debut for Kilkenny in 2001, he won a total of nine All-Ireland medals, six All Stars and in 2003 won the clean sweep of all three Hurler of the Year awards. 

Sky Sports begins its 2015 coverage with the Leinster Football Senior Championship Quarter-Final featuring Kildare v Laois/Carlow on 6 June. The match will be the first of 14 exclusively live matches throughout the season.
