Kilkenny to meet Waterford as hurling and football draws made

Kilkenny to meet Waterford as hurling and football draws made”

Kilkenny and neighbours Waterford will go head to head in the All Ireland Senior Hurling Qualifiers on Saturday next.

Kilkenny will face Waterford in Round Two of the All-Ireland SHC qualifiers.

Both ties are set to take place this weekend, with official venues and throw in times to be confirmed by the GAA later in the day.

All-Ireland champions Tipperary will be thankful they missed one of the big guns.

The victor of next Saturday's contests will earn a place in the All-Ireland quarter-finals on Sunday, July 23rd against one of the defeated provincial finalists (Wexford or Cork/Clare).

Following in the wake of the disappointing 1-26 to 2-27 defeat suffered at the hands of Cork in a Munster quarter-final on Sunday, May 21st blue and gold supporters were expecting to see a re-energised Tipperary team in action on Saturday.

Following Mayo's laboured win over Derry, Clare could fancy themselves at home, while Donegal will be favourites to progress away to Meath. Derek McGrath's side blew past Offaly last weekend, putting up a massive 1-35 to get their championship campaign back on track, while Kilkenny were pushed to the wire by a young Limerick side before digging out a three-point win. Tipp were nine-point winners against Westmeath in Round 1, but failed to impress for long stretches, while Dublin comfortably accounted for Laois with a 2-28 to 1-15 win.
