Here's the fixtures for the Leinster and Munster pre-season knockout games next weekend

McGrath Cup, Munster hurling league, O’Byrne Cup and Walsh Cup action will take centre stage.

THE WEEKEND GAA action in Leinster and Munster has left the picture clearer ahead of the concluding stages of the pre-season fare in the provinces.

pjimage The McGrath Cup final and Walsh Cup semi-finals will be on the agenda next weekend.

In Munster the two finals will take place next weekend – Cork taking on Clare on Saturday in the McGrath Cup football decider in a repeat of last year’s final and a meeting of Clare and Tipperary on Sunday in the Co-Op Superstores Munster senior hurling league.

Venues and throw-in times will be confirmed tomorrow.

In Leinster, Dublin’s victory over Laois propels them into the Walsh Cup semi-finals. They will take on Galway next Sunday afternoon in Parnell Park while Wexford entertain Kilkenny at Innovate Wexford Park.

Throw-in time for both games is 2pm and it will be a seasonal bow for Wexford, Kilkenny and Galway.

Meath’s success on Saturday over Wexford set up an O’Byrne Cup semi-final clash with Dublin next Saturday night while Longford will take on Westmeath earlier that afternoon.
