The draw for the football will take place at 7.30am with the hurling an hour later.

The hurling is an open draw as it was in 2020 with one quarter-final and three teams receiving a bye into the semi-finals.

Limerick will be looking for three in a row with Tipperary in 1989 the last side to achieve that feat in Munster.

The footballers will face one of Kerry, Waterford or Clare in the Munster Football quarter-final. Last years finalists Cork and Tipperary receive a bye into the last four.

Unlike the hurling, the football will be straight knockout..
