Galway next up for Waterford

There is a familiar look to the pairings for the All-Ireland SHC quarter-finals. Dublin will play Limerick, while Galway will provide the opposition for beaten Munster finalists Waterford.

The Déise were destined to face John McIntyre’s Tribesmen, who ended Cork’s summer campaign in impressive fashion yesterday afternoon.

This is because Dublin, who lost the Leinster final to Kilkenny, had already met Galway in this year’s Championship.

In a similar scenario, a previous provincial clash ruled out a potential encounter between Waterford and Limerick. Donal O'Grady's men accounted for Antrim in their third phase qualifier win.

These quarter-final ties are the same as the pairings from the 2009 quarter-finals. Back then, goals from Brian Murray and Paudie McNamara helped Limerick to a 2-18 to 0-17 victory over the Dubs in Thurles.

Two years ago, in Davy Fitzgerald’s second season in charge, Waterford squeezed past Galway and into the last-four.

The Munster side’s second half comeback at Semple Stadium was completed by John Mullane’s match-winning point, sealing a 1-16 to 0-18 triumph.

The GAA’s Central Competitions Control Competition will announce the times, dates and venues for the matches tomorrow. The games are due to be played over the weekend of July 23-24.
