The final stages of the Championships across all four branches of Hurling, Camogie, Men’s and Ladies Football are coming into sharp focus now after another weekend of dramatic action on the pitch.
On RTÉ Radio’s Morning Ireland earlier today Galway and Tipperary were drawn to play in next weekend’s All Ireland Hurling Championship Quarter Finals, with Clare and Waterford making up the other pairing.
The two games will take place at neutral venues next Saturday, November 21st with the winners going on to face Limerick and Kilkenny the following weekend.
The line ups in the TG4 All Ireland Ladies Football and the Liberty Insurance All Ireland Camogie Championships were decided with Armagh causing the biggest upset in the big ball game beating Mayo to set up a Semi-Final clash against Dublin on the weekend of the 28th / 29th November.
Cork and Galway will meet in the other match in a game that will be pushed back a week to the first weekend in December so as to avoid a clash with the dual players of Cork.
Cork secured their spot in the Camogie semi-finals with a win over Clare and have been drawn to play against Kilkenny in a rematch of the Final pairing that dominated the sport until Galway’s breakthrough last year.
Galway will face Tipperary on the other side of the draw.
In the Men’s football, Mayo became the first to book their place in the final four after a narrow margin win over Galway in the Connacht Final.
Donegal and Cavan progressed to the Ulster decider while Dublin and Meath will renew old rivalry in the Leinster decider at Croke Park next Saturday evening.
Tipperary and Cork will contest the Munster Final having each had a week to recover from their semi-final wins last weekend.
