League semi-finals fixed for Nowlan Park
Kilkenny's Nowlan Park will host the Allianz hurling league semi-finals on Sunday, April 19.
Cork and Dublin will meet in the curtain raiser at 2pm while Munster finals Tipperary - now favourites to lift the title - and Waterford will clash at 4pm. Both games will be shown live on TG4.
The Premier County will definitely be without Kieran Bergin who damaged ankle ligament in their quarter final win over Offaly.
All Star full forward Seamus Callanan will also miss the tie unless he successfully appeals against the red card he received in the Offaly game.

Division 2A Final: Westmeath v Kerry, Gaelic Grounds, Limerick, 3pm
