DEFENDING ALL-IRELAND champions Tipperary will face beaten Leinster finalists Galway in the All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals next weekend.

The game will take place next Saturday in Limerick’s Gaelic Grounds at 1.15pm with TV coverage on RTÉ 2.

The second quarter-final will be an all-Munster affair on Saturday with Waterford set to take on Clare in Páirc Uí Chaoimh at 3.45pm, live on Sky Sports Mix.

Yesterday, Waterford were edged out in the Munster hurling final by back-to-back champions Limerick while Tipperary overcame Cork in their qualifier on Saturday. 

Galway lost out to Kilkenny on Saturday night in the Leinster decider and Clare ended Wexford’s involvement in the championship.  

A draw for the semi-finals will only be required if Clare and Tipperary both progress, as repeat pairings are to be avoided where possible and both counties have already faced Limerick in this year’s Munster championship.
