“We’re disappointed and wonder would Kilkenny or Waterford be required to play Tipp in Thurles without an agreement.”
When the counties last met in the championship, in the All-Ireland quarter-final of 2014 the venue was also Semple Stadium although in 2011 they played an All-Ireland semi-final in Croke Park.
The match takes place this Saturday and will be the first on a double bill with Waterford-Kilkenny, who will re-engage after last year’s memorable, replayed All-Ireland semi-final.
In the football qualifier draw, also made on Monday, Mayo will travel to Clare whereas Donegal face Meath in Navan.
All qualifiers are on Saturday, July 8th.
