Tipperary will face Waterford and Dublin take on Cork in next weekend’s All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals. The draw took place on RTÉ Radio’s Morning Ireland and was conducted by GAA president Larry McCarthy.

The beaten provincial finalists were drawn against the winners of last Saturday’s qualifiers round two. Cork won a terrific match in Limerick, which went to the last seconds before Kieran Kingston’s team emerged.

Waterford’s first-half blitz proved too much for Galway’s late revival in Thurles.

Tipp haven’t played Waterford in the championship since their provincial round robin two years ago when the former won 2-30 to 0-18 in Thurles. Dublin and Cork met only last year in the All-Ireland qualifiers with the latter coming out on top 1-25 to 0-22, also in Semple Stadium.

Waiting in the semi-finals will be Leinster and Munster champions, Kilkenny and Limerick. Details of the quarter-final fixtures will be released this afternoon by Croke Park’s Central Competitions Control Committee.

Before the draw McCarthy said that the GAA hope to have more than 18,000 in Croke Park for the semi-finals and final depending on the public health situation.
