GAA Football – Round 2 qualifier draw.

This weekends eight matches in round 1 of the qualifiers saw 8 sides exit this year’s Football Championship and the eight victors advance into this morning round 2 draw.

Yesterday’s four games saw wins for Monaghan, Down, Longford and Westmeath and these sides joined Saturday’s winners Offaly, Leitrim, Derry and Antrim in Bowl One of the draw. Bowl Two which is made up of the beaten provincial semi-finals consisted of yesterday’s beaten Leinster semi-finalists Laois and Kildare and Armagh who lost out to Cavan in their Ulster semi-final replay. Last years All-Ireland finalists Tyrone once again must go through the qualifiers if they wish to return to this year’s showpiece event. Mayo, who contested back to back finals in 2016 & 2017 were also in Bowl Two after their loss to Roscommon in the Connacht Championship.

Where a division One or Two side was drawn out first then they cede home advantage to a side from division Three or Four.

Westmeath v Limerick

Longford v Tyrone

Antrim v Kildare

Clare v Leitrim

Mayo v Down

Derry v Laois

Monaghan v Armagh

They meet in Pearse Stadium next Sunday (16th June) at 4pm. The Munster showpiece contains the familiar pairing of Cork v Kerry who will meet in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Saturday 22nd June (throw-in time to be confirmed).  After Ulster Semi-final wins for Donegal and Cavan this weekend, they advance to meet in the Ulster final on Sunday 23rd June at 2pm, while on the same day the Royals stand between Dublin and a nine-in-a-row in Leinster. Indeed it was Meath who were the last side to beat the Dubs in the province, back in the 2010 Leinster semi-final.
