Replying To TerribleFootwork:  "Sunday December 18th vs Ulster Champions in AI semi final is being reported, St Thomas wedding is on the 17th so that is ruled out and no appetite for a January deferral, GAA would probably prefer to avoid a Dec18th fixture as the world cup final is on at 3 that day, all that was reported in the examiner."
Ok thanks. Either way it'll probably be frigid weather by the time the Final rolls around.

Id be hoping one semifinal saturday evening and the other sunday at 1pm. WC final is 3pm so should give those looking to get to Qatar plenty of time!

Probably most likely I'd say, maybe Ballyhale and Ballygunner (jumping the gun I know) under lights in Thurles on the Saturday, other semi on the Sunday at 1 somewhere like Parnell Park.

Cavan or Longford is roughly half way between Slaughtneil and St Toms. Would this be a decent venue for this game? Personally dont like Parnell so would hope it isnt there. Never been to Pearse Park but Breffni Park in Cavan is a great spot. But you'd imagine it will be in Parnell. Will be a great game I think. Slaughtneil havent played football in awhile so full commitment to hurling.

Whoever wins the game between Ballygunner and Ballyea the AI semi in Thurles makes sense.
What about Clones for the other semi? Great ground!
