Galway, through to the All-Ireland semi-finals after a decisive win over All Ireland champions Cork last weekend should have enough to spare over their neighbours Clare. The Banner county have performed well to date and manager Patsy Fahey will use this year’s championship to boost his young side. Galway, stronger and with more firepower should collect the points.
Kilkenny v Dublin, Nowlan Park, Time 2pm Alan Lagrue
Dublin have suffered heavy defeats to Wexford and Cork and they won’t relish this outing against their near neighbours. Kilkenny have progressed nicely through this year’s Gala round robin stages and Ann Downey’s side are unlikely to slip up at home.
Tipperary v Wexford, The Ragg, Time 3pm Mike O’ Kelly, Cork
Tipp’s summer of woe continues. Defeats to the big two of Cork and Kilkenny have dented their championship hopes. Eoin Brislane must rally his charges against a high scoring Wexford side if the Premier county are to reach the last four. However Wexford , possess a greater scoring threat overall and should record a win.
