DUBLIN WILL TAKE on Limerick in Croke Park in their Allianz hurling league quarter-final next weekend while it’s back to Nowlan Park for Kilkenny and Clare in their Division 1A relegation decider.

They’re the main talking points after the toss for home advantage in the knockout stages of the hurling league. Cork and Offaly will also enjoy home advantage for their clashes against Wexford and Tipperary respectively.

It’s good news for Dublin and Cork fans in particular as their games will now form part of double-headers with the county’s football teams fixtures. Dublin take on Limerick in Croke Park next Saturday at 5pm in a game which will act as a curtain-raiser to the Dublin-Derry Division 1 football league tie.

Cork’s footballers are at home to Mayo next Sunday in Division 1 with Páirc Uí Rinn set to host a double-header of that clash and the meeting of Cork and Wexford.
