It’s going to be busy.

THURLES WILL HOST a cracking hurling double-header on Saturday evening after the GAA confirmed that both Round 2 qualifiers are set to take place at Semple Stadium.

Despite the expectation that both games would be played at neutral venues, Tipperary will have home advantage against Dublin with throw-in at 5pm.

That clash will be followed by the meeting of Kilkenny and Waterford at 7pm which will be televised live on Sky Sports, a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland semi-final.

Elsewhere, RTÉ will have live coverage of the Round 3A qualifier between Clare and Mayo which throws in at Cusack Park, Ennis, at 5pm on Saturday.

Meath host Donegal in Páirc Tailteann, Navan, at 6pm on Saturday.
