Waterford have failed in their bid to have next year's Munster SHC quarter-final against Cork played at Walsh Park.

At tonight's Munster Council meeting, it was decided that Semple Stadium will host the glamour tie on May 25 and that the counties wouldn't be entering into a home and away arrangement. Thurles will also host the first semi-final between Tipperary and Limerick a week later.

Walsh Park, which was inspected by officials from the provincial body earlier this week, is currently undergoing redevelopment works that will increase its capacity to 17,000. The Waterford city venue last hosted a Munster SHC tie in 2003 when Kerry were the visitors.
