SEMPLE STADIUM WILL host a double-header for this year’s Division 1 hurling and camogie league finals.

It was confirmed today that Cork will take on Galway in the camogie league decider in the curtain-raiser for the hurling final between Cork and Waterford.

It was announced yesterday that Cork and Waterford would meet in Thurles on Sunday 3 May following wins over Dublin and Tipperary on Sunday.

Tipperary’s Johnny Ryan will take charge as referee of the hurling match which has a throw-in of 3.30pm with the camogie game commencing at 1.30pm. Both games will be broadcast live on TG4.

The Cork-Waterford pairing is a repeat of the 1998 final — which was Cork’s last league title — and also a dress rehearsal for the Munster Championship semi-final between the sides five weeks later on 7 June.

The GAA also confirmed yesterday that the EirGrid All-Ireland U21 Football final between Tipperary and Tyrone will take place the previous day, 2 May, in Páirc Tailteann, Navan.

Longford’s Fergal Kelly will referee that game which sees Tipperary contest their first ever All-Ireland U21 football final. It is Tyrone’s first decider at this level since they lost out in 2003 against Dublin.

Throw-in is at 6pm.
