What Time Are The All-Ireland Hurling Quarter-Finals On?

The All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals take place in Thurles this weekend. What time do the sides lock horns?

All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals

Galway face Clare in a repeat of the 2013 All-Ireland hurling quarter-final. Waterford meet Wexford in a rematch of the 2014 qualifier between the two sides.

Waterford and Wexford clash in the opener at 2.00. Derek McGrath was in reflective mood after Waterford were trounced in the Munster Final by Tipperary for the second time this decade.

Wexford manager Liam Dunne was in crowing form after his team caused a mild upset with a defeat of a fragile Cork in a Thurles qualifier.

The local press wanted him removed at the start of the year. The national press, meanwhile, couldn't understand why he was still in the job after an abysmal 2015. He complained long and loud about knives in his back earlier in the year.


The victory over Cork was a sweet moment. Now, they face into an All-Ireland quarter-final against Waterford with serious momentum behind them. The question remains whether they've improved enough to down Waterford.

Clare arrive at the quarter-finals having navigated the challenge of Limerick in the qualifiers. They already won a League title at the same venue earlier this season. There is a belief that their youthful stars are sure to deliver soon. These factors have made them slight favourites in the eyes of most observers.


Galway feel like a team under siege. They are under severe pressure.

The press ripped into them following their Leinster final defeat. Former manager Ger Loughnane was especially merciless.

That loss indicated they haven't improved hugely since rebelling against their manager last season. They have a long tradition of floundering in the season after an All-Ireland final loss.


The game throws in at 4.00.
