- All 64 FIFA World Cup games live between June 14 and July 15

- Coverage of the Papal visit in August

- Live coverage of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

- A new series of All Round To Mrs. Brown's 

- The return of The Sunday Game and live coverage of the All-Ireland Hurling and Football Championships

Plus loads, loads more.
