Tipperary celebrate after winning this year’s All-Ireland Hurling Championship

All-Ireland hurling champions Tipperary will begin the defence of their title next year with a Munster quarter-final against Cork.

Michael Ryan’s side, who beat Kilkenny in this year’s final, must win two games to reach the Munster final, with the winner of the Tipp-Cork tie playing Waterford in the semis. The other semi-final pits Limerick against Clare.

Kilkenny go straight into the semi-finals of a Leinster Championship featuring a qualifying group, three quarter-finals and two semi-finals before the final.

Galway and Dublin meet in one quarter, while Wexford and Offaly both face draws against a qualifier – one of Laois, Westmeath, Meath and Kerry.

Football champions Dublin’s first assignment is a Leinster Championship quarter-final against Carlow or Wexford, with Offaly or Westmeath awaiting in the semis.

New York and London both feature in the Connacht draw, with last season’s All-Ireland runners-up Mayo entering at the quarter-final stage against either New York or Sligo.

In Munster, Kerry play Limerick or Clare in one semi-final, with Tipperary taking on Cork or Waterford in the other, while in Ulster, Donegal face a quarter-final with Antrim.
