Cork made their passage to the semi-final after overcoming the challenge of their Munster counterparts Clare in the quarter-final.

After finishing runner-up in Group 1, they entered the quarter-final stages where two late goals from lynchpin Amy O'Connor put the game beyond the reach of Clare and booked the Rebels into another All-Ireland semi-final outing. 

Kilkenny finished top of their group and remain unbeaten in the Championship heading into the fixture this weekend. Impressive victories over Limerick, Westmeath and Waterford meant straight passage to the semi-final stages, where they have set up a mouth-watering tie against their old foes Cork.

The Cats are looking to make an incredible fifth consecutive All-Ireland final appearance, but may be at risk of being under-cooked after a relatively easy passage to the last four.

Reigning champions Galway have been in impressive form in this year’s Championship campaign to date and secured their place in the semi-finals as Group 1 winners.

Within the group they faced stern challenges from Wexford and Offaly before a final group clash with Cork to determine top spot in the group. Cathal Murray’s side prevailed with a 0-15 to 0-12 victory over Cork in the final group game to secure their top spot and book their place in the semi-final stages. 

Tipperary have been a delight to watch this season and will have no fears facing into this weekend’s semi-final challenge against the title holders. With two wins from two in their Group 3 campaign they entered into the quarter-finals where they overcame a defiant Waterford side to deservedly earn their semi-final berth.

Bill Mullaney’s side - who are going into their third straight semi-final and still awaiting a victory - are unbeaten in the Championship campaign to date so one of these two teams will end their unbeaten run this weekend.
