THE LAST THREE Galway senior hurling kingpins will all feature in semi-final showdowns next Sunday as this year’s championship reaches the last four stage.
Yesterday’s 1-23 to 2-19 quarter-final win for St Thomas over Clarinbridge completed the semi-final up as it was the remaining last eight fixture to be played.
It means 2016 title winners St Thomas, with David Burke and Conor Cooney on board, will take on 2015 victors Sarsfields, who have Joseph Cooney in their ranks, in the opening semi-final tie.
Then reigning champions Liam Mellows, victors last season for the first time in 47 years, will take on Cappataggle, who are aiming to contest a decider for the first time.
