Two Tipperary referees will be on duty for the All Ireland senior and minor hurling semi-finals at Croke Park on August 18.

The senior game between Clare and Limerick will be refereed by Johnny Ryan of Boherlahan Dualla and the minor game between Limerick and Galway will be refereed by Fergal Horgan of Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams.

Johnny is a highly experienced and able referee and has already been in charge of All Ireland finals at minor, under 21 and club level as well as provincial senior finals in both Munster and Leinster.

Fergal is new to the inter-county panel and it’s a great achievement to be rewarded so early in his career with a national semi-final.
