The question marks over both Galway and Cork will lead to an intriguing All-Ireland hurling quarter-final clash, according to Jackie Tyrrell.

Cork eventually saw off the challenge of Antrim in their preliminary quarter-final on Saturday to book their spot in the next round where they will face a Galway side which fell short against Kilkenny in the Leinster final.

Speaking on RTÉ's The Sunday Game, former Kilkenny corner-back Tyrrell said there was little to choose between the two sides ahead of next Saturday's battle.

"I'd imagine they'll both be going under the radar because they're not really playing fluid hurling at the minute," he said.

"There's question marks on both sides. You look at the Galway performance in the Leinster final, (it was) very flat and some of their key performers - Joseph Cooney, Tom Monaghan, Cathal Mannion - they're key guys and didn't perform in that game.

"So I'd expect a response from both (teams) but it's really a very tight game because there's no real form from either in their last two performances."

The other quarter-final will see Wexford and Clare lock horns and former Galway manager Micheál Donoghue believes Wexford will be looking to shackle Tony Kelly.

"I'd imagine Wexford may set up with a sweeper and maybe that will be Diarmuid O'Keeffe," he said.

"For all the games that are going to come, the match-ups are going to be huge, equally in the Galway-Cork game.

"But very much so with Tony Kelly and the form he showed the last day (against Limerick). He's going to take special watching."
