Croke Park to host both All Ireland Camogie semi-finals for first time


Both of this year's All Ireland Senior Camogie semi-finals will be played at Croke Park. 

It's the first time in history that both senior semi-finals will be played at GAA HQ.

The matches will be played as a double-header on Sunday August 29.

The delay to this year's All Ireland senior football final, as a result of Tyrone's COVID-19 outbreak, has facilitated the move.

Cork and Galway are already through to the semi-finals, and will face winners of Saturday's semi-finals.

Wexford play Kilkenny in the first of two games at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, with Tipperary facing Waterford in the other.

Both of those games are set to be televised on RTÉ 2, with Wexford manager Kevin Tattan saying, "It’s exposure.

"A lot of the girls are only coming together and playing as a group the past 12-18 months so they don’t have a lot of synergy with each other and understanding how another person plays, and we’ve been trying to use so many different players to give them that time on the field."

Camogie Association CEO Sinead McNulty added, "We are looking forward to this weekend’s All-Ireland Senior Championship Quarter-Finals in Páirc Uí Chaoimh and wish Kilkenny, Wexford, Tipperary and Waterford the very best of luck.

"These exciting pairings will positively showcase our game, in a fantastic setting."

The draw for the semi-finals will take place after Saturday's games, with ticket details to follow.
