Reigning All-Ireland champions Galway will play their All-Ireland SHC semi-final in Croke Park on Saturday, July 28 (5pm) while Munster champions Cork will be in action at GAA HQ the following day (3.30pm).

All that remains to be decided this weekend is the identity of their two opponents and, because repeats of provincial final pairings are not permitted at that stage, the GAA has clarified the permutations for the last four of the Liam MacCarthy Cup race:

  • If Kilkenny and Clare win their quarter-finals, the semi-final pairings will be: Galway v Clare and Cork v Kilkenny.
     
  • If Limerick and Wexford win their quarter-finals, the semi-final pairings will be: Galway v Limerick and Cork v Wexford.
     
  • If Kilkenny and Wexford win their quarter-finals, the semi-final pairings will be Galway v Wexford and Cork v Kilkenny.
     
  • If Clare and Limerick win their quarter-finals, the semi-final pairings will be Galway v Clare and Cork v Limerick.

Meanwhile, the fixture details for the Bord Gáis Energy All-Ireland U-21 Hurling semi-finals have also been confirmed with both matches taking place on Saturday, August 4.

Galway and Tipperary will meet in Cusack Park, Ennis at 2pm, with Cork and Wexford playing in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny at 4pm.
