After some close encounters in the first round of the provincial championships last weekend, semi-final battles are on the cards in the Munster and Leinster Hurling Championships this weekend.

With six football quarter-finals across Ulster and Leinster also lined up, we have the latest on Saturday’s action below.

Hurling

Dublin beat Galway by four points in their Leinster Senior Hurling Championship semi-final at Croke Park this afternoon, providing the first shock of the championship.

1-18 to 1-14 was the final score, with Chris Crummey getting the goal for the boys in blue in the second half.

The win sees Dublin secure their place in the Leinster Hurling Final.

There they will face the winner of today's other last four clash — reigning champions Kilkenny.

The Cats also booked their place in the Leinster final with a win over Wexford this evening.

Although Davy Fitzgerald's side led with less than 10 minutes of normal time left to play, extra-time at Croke Park brought the final scoreline to 2-37 to 2-29 in favour of the Cats.

Eoin Cody and Walter Walsh provided the goals for Kilkenny.

Elsewhere, All-Ireland Champions Limerick beat Cork 2-22 to 1-17 in their Munster Hurling semi-final at Semple Stadium this evening.

The Treaty goals came via a deflected Darragh O'Donovan shot and Kyle Hayes.

Monaghan scored a win over Fermanagh in their Ulster Senior Football Championship quarter-final this afternoon.

Full time at Clones saw Monaghan up 10 points, with 1-21 to 0-14 the final tally.

Jack McCarron found the back of the net for the hosts in the 17th minute.

Monaghan's Conor McManus had to be replaced after suffering what looked like a serious knee injury, while Karl O’Connell was named Man of the Match.
