Cork to face Galway in camogie semis

Reigning Gala All-Ireland Senior Camogie champions Cork will face Galway in the last-four of this year's Championship, after the semi-final draw was made at Croke Park.

The Rebelettes will battle it out with Galway, following on from their crucial victories over Wexford and Clare in the round robin stages in recent weeks.

Cork and Galway met earlier in this year's Championship, with the Tribeswomen prevailing by 1-14 to 0-11 at Kenny Park in Athenry.

Meanwhile, the second semi-final will see Leinster rivals Kilkenny and Wexford battle for a place in the All-Ireland final.

Last year, Kilkenny reached the All-Ireland final for the first time since 2001, and have continued their good run of form this year, with five victories from six games in the group stages.

The Cats' only loss was to Wexford in the final game of the round robin series.

Both semi-finals will be played as a double header at Nowlan Park on Saturday, August 14.

The Cork v Galway clash is first up at 2pm, followed by Kilkenny against Wexford at 4pm.
