All-Ireland SFC Round 1 Qualifier draw an exciting one


This morning’s All-Ireland SFC Round 1 Qualifier draw produced some really exciting match-ups.

Reigning All-Ireland champions Tyrone will travel to Ulster rivals Armagh while last year’s beaten All-Ireland finalists, Mayo, have a home match against fellow Division 1 side Monaghan.

The other two Round 1 matches see Clare host Meath and Cork host Louth.

The fixtures are scheduled for weekend of June 4/5 and fixture details will be confirmed by the CCCC in due course.

The draw involved the eight counties from Divisions 1 & 2 of the Allianz Football League that did not qualify for their Provincial Final.

An open draw determined the four pairings with the first team drawn having Home Advantage*.
