Galway will play the quarter-final winners of Wexford and either Dublin or Clare (who play off tomorrow in Semple Stadium at 2.0).

Kilkenny will face the winners of the Tipperary and Cork quarter-final, also taking place tomorrow, at 4.0 in Semple Stadium.

It has also been confirmed that in the event of Clare and Dublin ending level, after extra-time, the replay will take place on Monday next, August 3, in Netwatch Cullen Park at 2.30, with the previously scheduled quarter-final tie against Wexford moving to Saturday, August 8.

In the event of Cork and Tipperary finishing level after extra-time, the replay will also take place on August 8.

The Camogie Association will be hoping for a smooth resolution to the rest of the senior championship after a fraught week.

The Clare-Dublin play-off comes after both teams had signalled their intention to withdraw from the championship over the proposed drawing of lots to decide Wexford's quarter-final opponents.

However, the matter was resolved with the decision to hold tomorrow's play-off. The winners will face a two-day turnaround, unless of course they can't be separated on the scoreboard once again.

While nothing divided the sides in the group stages, Dublin had earlier beaten Clare by two points in the National League.
