Reigning All-Ireland champions Cork will meet defending provincial champions Kerry in the Munster minor football semi-final.
With the All-Ireland Minor Football Championship reverting to a straight knockout format on account of the truncated inter-county season, new draws are required in each of the provinces, all four of whom typically run their minor competitions on a round-robin basis.
In this evening’s Munster draw, Cork and Kerry have been pitted against one another at the semi-final stage. And no more than the senior semi-final clash between the counties, this too will be a winner-takes-all fixture.
In the Munster Minor Hurling Championship, Donal Óg Cusack’s Cork meet last year’s beaten provincial finalists, Clare, at the quarter-final stage. The winners of this game progress to face Limerick in the semis.
In the other quarter-final, Tipperary take on Kerry. This is the first time since 2014 that a Kerry minor team has competed in the Munster minor hurling championship.
