Today’s All-Ireland senior hurling quarter-final action means we now know next weekend’s semi-final pairings.

Waterford’s reward for defeating Tipperary today by 4-28 to 2-27 sees them through to meet Limerick next Saturday evening at 5pm. The teams met twice in 2020 with John Kiely’s men triumphing in the Munster final and All-Ireland final clashes.

Cork beat Dublin tonight 2-26 to 0-24 and will now face Kilkenny next Sunday afternoon at 3.30pm. The counties last met in the 2019 championship with Kilkenny winning that quarter-final tie.

GAA supporters received good news yesterday with Covid-19 crowds restrictions set to be relaxed, allowing attendances of 24,000 at each of the All-Ireland hurling semi-finals.

Last year’s finalists Limerick and Waterford are still in the hunt for the Liam MacCarthy Cup, along with 2019 finalists Kilkenny while Cork must go back to 2013 for their last appearance in a decider.
