All-Ireland Hurling quarter-final draw: Tipperary to face Galway, Waterford take on Clare

All-Ireland champions Tipperary will play Galway in the All-Ireland Hurling Championship quarter-finals, while Waterford and Clare were paired in Monday’s draw.

Tipp and Galway meet for the first time in the championship since their epic 2017 All-Ireland semi-final.

The Premier and Banner came through qualifiers against Cork and Wexford respectively on Saturday.

A late Jake Morris tipped the balance in the All-Ireland champions’ favour, as they overcame the Leesiders at the Gaelic Grounds. Liam Sheedy’s side are aiming to become the first team from the county to retain the Liam MacCarthy Cup since 1965.

Brian Lohan’s team overcame Davy Fitzgerald’s side, in no small part thanks to the showing of Tony Kelly. The Ballyea man hit a personal tally of 1-15, in a remarkable individual display in Portlaoise.

Meanwhile, Galway and Waterford will be looking to bounce back from defeat in the provincial finals.

The Tribesmen fell to Kilkenny at Croke Park, despite leading by five points in the second half. The Déise put up a strong showing in the Munster decider, but eventually succumbed to Limerick’s pressure.

The games will take place next Saturday. Venues and throw-in times will be confirmed on Monday afternoon. One of the matches will be live and exclusive on Sky Sports Mix.
