No draw required for All-Ireland Hurling semi-finals


No draw will be required for this year's All-Ireland SHC semi-finals.

That's because semi-finals are subject to the respective provincial champions not meeting the defeated finalists from their own province at this stage as well as the avoidance of repeat pairings, where feasible.

There will be a number of possible pairings depending on the results in Saturday's All-Ireland SHC Quarter-Finals which are detailed below.

Possible Pairings

If Dublin & Tipperary win

  • Limerick v Dublin
  • Kilkenny v Tipperary

If Dublin & Waterford win

  • Limerick v Dublin
  • Kilkenny v Waterford

If Cork & Tipperary win

  • Limerick v Cork
  • Kilkenny v Tipperary

If Cork & Waterford win
