THE opening games in the knockout stages of the hurling championships have been set by the Cork County Board.

Starting with the Sars-Erin's Own derby clash in the Premier Senior Hurling quarter-final at Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Friday, September 11 at 7.30pm and concluding with Na Piarsaigh v UCC on Sunday, September 13 at 7pm, it promises to be another hectic three days of local GAA.

Other appealing games include Watergrasshill against Courcey Rovers in the PIHC quarter-final at Ballyanley and Blarney meeting Ballincollig in Páirc Uí Rinn. In the IAHC, Aghabullogue will battle Mayfield earlier that Saturday in Páirc Uí Rinn, while in the lower intermediate grade Tracton and Killbrittain clash at Brinny.

Blackrock and Douglas in the PSHC will be in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, at 2pm on Sunday, September 13, while the Senior A Hurling quarter-finals are Bride Rovers-Newcestown in Blarney and Kanturk-Bandon at Coachford the same day.

There are more games to be added to the schedule once the final group games of the football series are concluded. The board will fix matches involving football teams without hurling commitments.

The board explained: "On the weekend of September 11-13, all quarter-finals and relegation play-offs in the hurling championship will take place, as well as all quarter-finals and relegation play-offs in the football championship which do not involve dual clubs. The football quarter-finals will be confirmed after next weekend’s results.

"On the weekend of September 18-20, the hurling semi-finals are provisionally fixed, subject to dual involvement, while the remaining football quarter-finals are likely to be played. 

"The CCC reserves the right to play either code on this weekend in order to facilitate dual involvement.

"Football fixtures to follow once quarter-final pairings are known. Hurling fixtures, as ratified by the CCC, are listed below. All games are ‘finish on the day’."
