Tipperary to face Galway in All-Ireland semi-final while Rebels drawn against Waterford

There’s a couple of mouth-watering ties in store.

DEFENDING CHAMPIONS TIPPERARY will face Galway in a mouth-watering first All-Ireland SHC semi-final next month.

Munster kingpins Cork will take on provincial rivals Waterford in the second last-four showdown.

The draw was made on RTÉ radio this morning.

The Leinster champs’ clash with the Premier will take place at Croke Park on Sunday, 6 August while Cork and the Déise’s showdown throws in seven days later at HQ.

The meeting of Galway and Tipperary will be the third successive All-Ireland semi-final clash between the counties after Galway’s 0-26 to 3-16 success in 2015 and Tipperary’s victory by 2-19 to 2-18 last August.

Cork and Waterford last met in an All-Ireland semi-final back in 2006 while they did face off in Croke Park at the quarter-final stage in 2007.

It will be a repeat of the Munster semi-final in June between Kieran Kingston and Derek McGrath’s teams, when Cork won out by 0-23 to 1-15.
