THREE OF THE quarter-finalists in this year’s Cork senior hurling championship are now known after the latest draws were made last night.

Reigning champions Glen Rovers, fellow city side Blackrock and East Cork club Bride Rovers have all received byes into the last eight stage after the Round 3 and Round 4 draws.

This as a result of their Round 2A wins with Glen Rovers defeating Sarsfields 3-17 to 4-12 in last Sunday’s replay, Blackrock running out 2-17 to 1-18 winners over Duhallow recently while Bride Rovers saw off Avondhu last month.

The standout tie of yesterday’s draw sees 2014 champions Sarsfields take on 2013 winners Midleton in their Round 4 tie. The East Cork rivals clashed in the 2013 final when Midleton triumphed.

The senior hurling championship in Cork is operating under a new format this year.

Here’s the full draw for Round 3 and Round 4 with the quarter-final draw set to be made at a later date.
