Poll: Which two sides will go head-to-head in the All-Ireland hurling final?

Tipperary and Galway, and Cork and Waterford will do battle for the two spots on offer.

THIS MORNING SAW the All-Ireland SHC semi-final draw made.

hurlingfinal Tipperary, Galway, Waterford and Cork have all made the semi-final stage.

Defending champions Tipperary are set to face league winners Galway in the first of the two semi-finals. That fixture will take place Sunday week, 6 August, in Croke Park (Throw-in 4pm).

Galway and Tipp will do battle at the semi-final stage for the third successive year. 2015 saw the Tribesmen come out on top by 0-26 to 3-16, while the Premier county progressed last August following a one-point win.

Meanwhile, Munster champions Cork go head-to-head with provincial rivals Waterford in the other last-four showdown seven days later. That match will throw in at GAA HQ at 3.30pm on 13 August.

Cork and Waterford haven’t met in an All-Ireland semi-final since 2006.

This June saw them face-off in the Munster semi-final, with Kieran Kingston’s charges winning out by 0-23 to 1-15.

We’re at the business end of the season now though, and there’s two coveted All-Ireland spots on offer for the winners of each tie.

So, which two sides will be back in Croke Park to contest the All-Ireland final on the 3 September?

Let us know what you think.
