SEVERAL MEMBERS OF Tipperary’s All-Ireland winning squad will face off next weekend after the draw was made last night for the county’s senior hurling quarter-finals.

Reigning champions Clonoulty-Rossmore, who saw off Loughmore-Castleiney after extra-time in yesterday’s preliminary round, will meet Kilruane MacDonaghs, who can call on Niall O’Meara and Jerome Cahill, next Sunday afternoon. 

Borris-Ileigh duo Brendan Maher and Dan McCormack will be in opposition to All-Ireland winning captain Seamus Callanan, who will feature for Drom-Inch, in the other quarter-final tie next Sunday.

On Saturday there will be an all-north tie between 2016 finalists Kiladangan, the club of Willie Connors, and last year’s semi-finalists Toomevara.

2018 beaten finalists Nenagh Éire Óg, who have Barry Heffernan and Jake Morris in their ranks, meet Éire Óg Annacarty, also on Saturday.
