All-Ireland quarter-final and semi-final dates released so pencil them in

Lee Costello

It’s coming thick and fast.

In this crazy condensed season that has more games than ever, the GAA have released the dates for the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the All-Ireland series.

This weekend sees the preliminary quarter finals take place with Monaghan v Kildare, Cork v Roscommon and Tyrone v Donegal all taking place on Saturday.

Galway will then host Mayo in a mouthwatering tie on Sunday that means one of the favourites to lift the Sam Maguire will be knocked out of the competition.

Dublin, Kerry, Derry and Armagh have already booked their places in the quarter final stages that will be played in the following week, although they don’t know who they will be facing yet.

The four All-Ireland SFC quarter-finals will be played at Croke Park on July 1 and 2. The GAA will first seek to avoid repeat provincial final and All-Ireland SFC round-robin pairings where possible.

This means that the likes of Derry and Monaghan (if they were to progress) would avoid each other, as they have played twice already in this championship.

The All-Ireland SFC semi-finals will be played on Saturday, July 15 at 5.30pm and Sunday, and July 16 at 4pm, in one mega weekend of footballing action.

This weekend will also host the Tailteann Cup final, which will be played before the first semi-final in a double header at Croke Park.

Currently Down are set to play Laois in one semi-final, while Meath are scheduled to play Antrim in the other, and those games will take place this Sunday.

The throw-in times have also been announced for the All-Ireland SHC semi-finals. All-Ireland champions Limerick will be involved against one of the quarter-final winners on Saturday, July 8 at Croke Park, 6pm throw-in.

The following afternoon at 4pm, Kilkenny’s game at the penultimate stage will take place.

This week on the GAA Hour, Shane Walsh was in studio to discuss last weekend’s action as the two lads looked ahead for this bonanza of a schedule.
