TULLAMORE BECKONS NEXT Saturday for the Dublin and Galway senior hurlers after today’s draw in the Leinster championship.

Aidan Harte’s late point rescued a draw for Galway as they finished level at 1-17 to 0-20 against Ger Cunningham’s Dublin team in Croke Park.

Their quarter-final clash will now be replayed next Saturday in O’Connor Park in Tullamore with a throw-in time of 4.45pm.

It’s part of a double-header with the Leinster senior football quarter-final between Kildare and Laois already fixed for the venue at 7pm next Saturday night.

Dublin and Galway last clashed in Tullamore in the 2011 Leinster senior hurling semi-final, a game where Dublin triumphed in by 0-19 to 2-7.

It remains to be seen whether the Dublin-Galway game will be televised live. Sky Sports 2015 GAA coverage begins with the broadcasting of the Kildare-Laois game but RTÉ could opt to show the Dublin-Galway clash live.

RTÉ will be showing the Champions League final between Barcelona and Juventus in Berlin next Saturday night but the hurling match may be televised beforehand.

It was all too easy for Dublin as they made light work of Longford at HQ
