All-Ireland SHC Semi-Final dates and permutations
Wednesday 11 July 2018

The dates and times for the 2018 All-Ireland SHC semi-finals have been confirmed.

Reigning All-Ireland champions Galway will play one quarter-final winner in Croke Park on Saturday, July 28, at 5pm.

While Munster champions Cork will play the other quarter-final winner in Croke Park on Sunday, July 29, at 3.30pm.

All-Ireland semi-finals are subject to the respective provincial champions (Galway and Cork) not meeting the defeated finalists form their own province at this stage, and, where feasible, the avoidance of repeat pairings.

With that in mind, here are the potential pairings for the All-Ireland SHC Semi-Finals.

If Kilkenny and Clare win their Quarter-Finals the Semi-Final pairings will be: Galway v Clare and Cork v Kilkenny.

If Limerick and Wexford win their Quarter-Finals the Semi-Final pairings will be: Galway v Limerick and Cork v Wexford.

If Kilkenny and Wexford win their Quarter-Finals, the Semi-Final pairings will be Galway v Wexford and Cork v Kilkenny.

If Clare and Limerick win their Quarter-Finals, the Semi-Final pairings will be Galway v Clare and Cork v Limerick.

Meanwhile, the fixture details for the Bord Gáis Energy All-Ireland U-21 Hurling Semi-Finals have also been confirmed with both matches taking place on Saturday, August 4.

Galway and Tipperary will meet in Cusack Park, Ennis at 2pm, with Cork and Wexford playing in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny at 4pm.

Another scorcher forecast for Sunday

#1568 is giving rain.


Just watched the forecast there on RTE


I find it very interesting people say 3 weeks on the trot will suit Kilkenny…

2017 knocked out of Leinster and beat Limerick in a qualifier by 3 points. Knocked out the following week by Waterford.

2015, 2016 and 2017 they won Leinster and won the all ireland in 15 and 16.
2013 knocked out of leinster and beat tipp, the following week beat waterford in extra time and two weeks after that they were beaten by cork by 5 points in an all ireland quarter final.

Even if you look at 2018. Galway round robin was the third game on the trot and they were hammered. 2 week break and they beat wexford. 3 week break and they draw with galway. 7 days later they are hammered by galway. 2016 and 2010 are the only years KK didn’t win Leinster and win the all ireland. I’d say codys style is based on leinster semi, leinster final, all ireland semi and final. All these games don’t suit Kilkennys style at all. They are built to peak with two weeks and three weeks rest required to recharge and go again.


Infact up until this year I don’t believe Kilkenny have ever played three weeks on the trot in championship. Their record of playing two weeks on the trot isn’t good either. Lost to Dublin in a replay a few years back, hammered by Galway last week. Limerick will win this.
