All-Ireland SHC Semi-Final dates and permutations


The dates and times for the 2018 All-Ireland SHC semi-finals have been confirmed.

Reigning All-Ireland champions Galway will play one quarter-final winner in Croke Park on Saturday, July 28, at 5pm.

While Munster champions Cork will play the other quarter-final winner in Croke Park on Sunday, July 29, at 3.30pm.

All-Ireland semi-finals are subject to the respective provincial champions (Galway and Cork) not meeting the defeated finalists form their own province at this stage, and, where feasible, the avoidance of repeat pairings.

With that in mind, here are the potential pairings for the All-Ireland SHC Semi-Finals.

If Kilkenny and Clare win their Quarter-Finals the Semi-Final pairings will be: Galway v Clare and Cork v Kilkenny.

If Limerick and Wexford win their Quarter-Finals the Semi-Final pairings will be: Galway v Limerick and Cork v Wexford.

If Kilkenny and Wexford win their Quarter-Finals, the Semi-Final pairings will be Galway v Wexford and Cork v Kilkenny.

If Clare and Limerick win their Quarter-Finals, the Semi-Final pairings will be Galway v Clare and Cork v Limerick.

Meanwhile, the fixture details for the Bord Gáis Energy All-Ireland U-21 Hurling Semi-Finals have also been confirmed with both matches taking place on Saturday, August 4.

Galway and Tipperary will meet in Cusack Park, Ennis at 2pm, with Cork and Wexford playing in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny at 4pm.
