Kerry v Cork in Munster minor semi-final.  Loser of that is done for the year.

Not necessarily the case that Kerry and Cork meet. Limerick playing Tipp in a playoff and if they win, they cannot face Clare again so Clare/Limerick and Cork/Kerry will have to be redrawn for the semi finals.

Bit of a nuts system. The Cork v Waterford game the other night for example is utterly pointless and did nothing for either team or development of football in either county.

You are correct...Munster GAA website updated today (they must read this board) with the following "In the event Limerick qualify for the Semi-Final, they cannot play Clare as repeat pairings are not allowed in the semi-finals. In that scenario, Cork will play Limerick and Kerry will play Clare."

They should look at two groups of three, guaranteeing everybody two games, top 2 to semifinal.  The two strongest teams will be in the final, even if in the same group of three initially.

Tipperary beat Limerick 2-12 to 1-11 in Newcastlewest after extra time. Play Waterford next Wednesday in effectively a quarter final.
