Having overcome Waterford kingpins Ballygunner in an intriguing semi-final, Ballyhale Shamrocks will start proceedings against Cuchullains Dunloy at 1.30 pm on the day.

The fixture presents an opportunity for TJ Reid and co to banish the memory of 2022 and the most heartbreaking end to their All-Ireland charge.

A last-minute Harry Ruddle strike sealed the most memorable victory for the Waterford outfit, crushing hearts across the county of Kilkenny.

The fixture comes less than 24 hours after Kilkenny’s Walsh Cup clash with Wexford, which marks a historic fixture under lights in the South East.

Kilmacud Crokes and Glen will meet in the football directly afterwards, with a throw-in from 3.30 pm.

Both games must have a winner on the day, with extra time to be played if required.

Shaun Connolly recently spoke with Shamrock's boss Hoban about his aspirations for the campaign and beyond.
