Galway and Tipperary will face off in an All-Ireland SHC semi-final for the third year in succession after yesterday morning's draw.

The reigning Leinster kingpins face the current All-Ireland champions in Croke Park on August 6 with both sides winning one of those games each so far. The other semi-final sees Cork take on Waterford a week later.

Last weekend's action also saw the pairings for the first two quarter-finals in the football championship confirmed.

Champions

On Sunday, Munster champions Kerry take on Kevin Walsh's Galway at 2.0, while Connacht winners Roscommon take on neighbours Mayo at 4.0 in a Croke Park double-header.

The Jones's road venue also hosts a double-header on Saturday evening as Down take on Monaghan (5.0) and Kieran McGeeney pits his Armagh side against his former charges Kildare (7.0).

The Lilywhites suffered a setback over the weekend when it was confirmed that talented young forward Neil Flynn will play no part against the Orchard County after suffering a setback in his recovery from a hamstring problem.

The winners of Saturday's games will secure the remaining All-Ireland quarter-final spots against Tyrone or Dublin.
