The loser of the Dublin-Kilkenny replay will face Tipperary in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship qualifiers, while Clare have been drawn to face Laois.

The Banner County will host Laois in the first of the ties, while the loser of the Dublin-Kilkenny clash will have home advantage over Tipperary in the second of the games.

The games will be played on Saturday 6 July.

All-Ireland SHC phase 2 qualifiers:
Clare v Laois
Losers of Dublin/Kilkenny v Tipperary

Kilkenny have TJ Reid to thank for scoring a point in the dying seconds to rescue a draw for the Cats against Dublin.

The Dubs looked to have secured a sensational first championship win over Kilkenny since 1942 when Joey Boland put them a point up in the second minute of injury-time. The sides will return to O'Moore Park in Portlaoise for the replay at 7pm next Saturday night.

In Munster, Cork proved too strong for Clare as they pulled away from the Bannermen in the second half of their Munster semi-final.

Cork now go on to face Limerick in the Munster final.

Meanwhile, the GAA has confirmed the dates times and venues for the two phase 1 All Ireland Hurling qualifiers.

Westmeath and Waterford will meet in Cusack Park in Mullingar at 5pm on Saturday while Wexford Park will host Wexford and Carlow at 7pm.
