Waterford have secured home advantage for Saturday's Allianz Hurling League quarter-final clash with Clare.

A toss of a coin was used to determine which side was handed the home fixture and as a result, the match will now take place at Walsh Park on 16 March with a 3:00pm throw-in.

With the football and hurling club finals taking place on St Patrick's Day, there will be an action-packed Saturday with no less than 20 inter-county fixtures taking place around the country. 

Parades in most provincial towns create traffic and policing restrictions that make it impractical to host GAA matches on St Patrick's Day, while the games played on Bank Holidays are traditionally poorly attended.

Aside from the Waterford clash with Clare, the remaining places in the hurling semi-finals will be determined as Galway take on Weford at Pearse Stadium (1:30pm), while Tipperary host the Dubs at Semple Stadium at 4:30pm.

The remaining hurling fixture sees the highly anticipated meeting of Cork and Kilkenny in the relegation play-off, which takes place at Nowlan Park at 2:00pm.

A full schedule of football fixtures also takes place on Saturday with the penultimate round of matches taking place throughout all four divisions.

Kerry can secure the top spot in Division 1 by avoiding defeat in Tralee, where they host Mayo.

The AIB GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Club Championship final sees Kilkenny's Ballyhale Shamrock take on St Thomas from Galway at Croke Park, ahead of the football equivalent where fellow Tribesmen Corofin meet Kerry's Dr Crokes.

The two finals throw in at 2:00pm and 3:45pm respectively. Extra time will be played if necessary.
