THE GAA HAVE confirmed fixture details for the All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals and the opening two rounds of the Super 8s. 

On Sunday 14 July, the two hurling quarter-finals will take place as a double-header at Croke Park. Kilkenny play the winners of Cork/Westmeath at 2pm while Tipperary face Dublin/Laois at 4pm.

It’s the first time the quarter-finals will take place at Croke Park since 2010.

Times and venues for Phase 1 and 2 of the Super 8s have also been announced. 

On Saturday 13 July, All-Ireland champions Dublin will open their campaign against Cork/Laois in Croke Park at 7pm. Roscommon will be the first provincial champions in action, taking on Cavan/Tyrone earlier that day at 5pm in Dr Hyde Park.

Ulster champions Donegal are in action on Sunday 14 July against Meath/Clare in Ballybofey at 2pm, while Kerry host Galway/Mayo at 4pm in Killarney.

Both the latter game clashes with the All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals between Tipperary and Dublin/Laois, meaning there will be a dilemma for TV coverage.

The second round of games feature double-headers at Croke Park on the weekend of 20/21 July.

The fixture details for Phase 3 of the quarter-final phase will be confirmed at a later date.
