Poll: Who do you now think will claim the All-Ireland senior club hurling title?

Liam Mellows, Cuala, Na Piarsaigh and Slaughtneil are the final four.

AND THEN THERE were four – the Galway, Dublin, Limerick and Derry club outfits that will fly the hurling flag for their counties.

The contestants for next year’s All-Ireland senior club hurling semi-finals are now known after the outcome of the weekend’s Galway and Leinster hurling showpieces.

The last two All-Ireland club champions will both be back chasing glory next spring, Na Piarsaigh returning after their 2016 success and current kingpins Cuala showing impressive staying power to return to this stage once more.

Derry’s Slaughtneil will also feature in the semi-finals and hoping to atone for their loss to Cuala last February.

It will mark unchartered territory for Galway’s Liam Mellows after they won their first county senior hurling title in 47 years last Sunday.

The last four games on 10 February next will see Liam Mellows facing Cuala and Na Piarsaigh taking on Slaughtneil.

But who do you think will be celebrating on St Patrick’s Day next?

Let us know.

Poll Results:

Na Piarsaigh (2058)
Cuala (1949)
Liam Mellows (420)
Slaughtneil (312)
