The draws for County Senior Hurling quarter finals have come in for some criticism.

The four pairings are exact replicas of earlier games in the tournament.

Eire Óg Annacarthy face Mullinahone, Kilruane McDonaghs take on Thurles Sarsfields, Borrisoleigh face Loughmore Castleiney and Clonoulty Rossmore meet Drom & Inch.

While clubs had agreed on an open draw, Loughmore Castleiney manager Declan Laffan says repeat pairings at this stage shouldn’t be allowed.
