Reigning All-Ireland hurling champions Tipperary will face Galway in this year's quarter-finals, with Clare and Waterford also meeting each other.

Tipp booked their place in the quarter-final draw, which was made on RTÉ's Morning Ireland, after beating Cork in a second round qualifier, while Galway entered the draw as beaten Leinster finalists following Saturday's loss to Kilkenny.

Waterford were in the mix after they lost the Munster final to Limerick on Sunday, while Clare had come through a qualifier match against Wexford.



The quarter-final ties will take place next Saturday.

The Gaelic Grounds in Limerick will host Galway v Tipperary at 1.15pm, live on RTÉ2. 

Then attention turns to Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork for Waterford v Clare at 3.45pm. That match will be on Sky Sports Mix. 

Provincial champions Limerick and Kilkenny await the quarter-final winners to fight it out for a place in the All-Ireland final with those semi-finals due to take place on the weekend of 28/29 November.

GAA president John Horan confirmed that a further draw will be made to decide the semi-final pairings should Clare and Tipperary win their quarter-finals.
