CLARE, WEXFORD, DUBLIN and Kilkenny will have home advantage for this year’s Allianz Division 1 hurling league quarter-finals.

The Banner will entertain Tipperary in Ennis, Wexford will be at home to Waterford at Innovate Wexford Park, Dublin will take on Limerick in Parnell Park while Kilkenny will face Offaly in Nowlan Park.

It has also been announced this morning that Galway will have home advantage in Pearse Stadium for their Division 1A hurling league relegation decider against Cork.

The quarter-final pairings were determined after yesterday’s last round of group games and the coin toss this morning saw Clare, Dublin and Kilkenny win home advantage.

It had already been determined that Wexford would be at home for their tie with Waterford due to the fact that Wexford had been at home only twice in the regulation stages of the league this spring in contrast to Waterford’s three home ties.

Here are the dates and times for the Allianz hurling league fixtures.
