On the other side of the draw Waterford and Cork will contest their respective semi-final while the provincial final is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, July 4th.

In the 2018 EirGrid Munster Under-20 Football Championship the Premier County have been drawn against Cork in the quarter-finals. The winner of that contest will take on Clare in the semi-finals while Waterford await the winner of the clash between Limerick and Kerry on the other side of the draw. The dates for the respective games in this competition will be released at a later date.

The 2018 Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Minor Championship will be run off as a round-robin competition using the same schedule as the Munster Senior Hurling Championship round-robin.
