COROFIN’S ALL-IRELAND quarter-final with Fulham Irish has been rearranged for Sunday 21 January while Derry champions Slaughtneil will have a two-week break in between their All-Ireland senior semi-final ties next spring.

The fixture details for the 2018 AIB All-Ireland club championships have been finalised today with the majority of the provincial championships – next Sunday’s Leinster senior football final the exception – having been completed.

Snow in Ruislip forced the postponement of the clash between Corofin and Fulham Irish last Sunday with the Galway club now set for a return trip in January. The winners of that tie will play the Leinster champions on 17 February.

The other senior football semi-final tie between Slaughtneil and Nemo Rangers has been deferred until 24 February to accommodate the Derry outfit who take on Limerick’s Na Piarsaigh in hurling a fortnight previously.

The other hurling semi-final sees reigning champions Cuala face Galway’s Liam Mellows on 10 February.
