The draw for the 2016 provincial Hurling Championships was made on Thursday night, throwing up some fascinating encounters.
Munster giants Tipperary and Cork will meet at the quarter-final stage this year whilst Waterford will face Clare in the semi-finals, where Limerick will be waiting for the winners of Cork and Tipp.
The Leinster Championship draw consists of a qualifier group of Offaly, Westmeath, Carlow and Kerry. Dublin will face Wexford in the only set quarter-final whilst the runners up from the qualifying group will play Laois. The winners from the qualifying group will be tasked with taking on All-Ireland finalists Galway, making up the three Leinster quarter-finals.
All-Ireland champions Kilkenny are the only Leinster Championship side already guaranteed a semi-final place.
