Last-eight clashes and relegation battles all fixed for this Sunday

This year's Division 1A table-toppers and 2017 finalists Tipperary are off to the capital to take on Dublin in their Allianz Hurling league quarter-final this weekend.

That match is fixed for a 3pm throw-in on Sunday, March 18 at Parnell Park.

The curtain raiser for the afternoon's last-eight action is the meeting of Offaly and Kilkenny in O'Connor Park, Tullamore at 1pm.

At 2pm, there's an intriguing clash between the league and All-Ireland champions Galway and Wexford at Innovate Wexford Park, in a repeat of last year's Leinster Senior Championship final which Galway won.

The quarter-final action wraps up at 4pm when Division 1A-bound Limerick host neighbours Clare at the Gaelic Grounds.

Also on Sunday the bottom two sides in 1A, Waterford and Cork, go head-to-head in a relegation play-off at Páirc Uí Rinn at 3pm while Pearse Park in Dunloy will host the 1B relegation battle between Antrim and Laois at 2.
