GAA reveal fixture details for the Round Two football qualifiers

Share this article

The fixture details have today been released for next week's Round Two All-Ireland senior football qualifiers.

The draw was made yesterday morning, with seven of the eight matches slated to take place on Saturday week June 22nd. The all-Ulster clash between Monaghan and Armagh will take place at St Tiernach's Park in Clones on Saturday 22nd, with a 7pm throw-in. Kieran McGeeney's Orchard outfit are coming off the back of Sunday's provincial semi-final replay defeat to Cavan, while Malachy O'Rourke's Monaghan saw off Fermanagh by four points in an ill-tempered qualifier affair.

Mayo travel to Newry's Páirc Esler to face Down at the same time, while Mickey Harte's All-Ireland finalists from last year Tyrone travel to Pearse Park at 5pm on the Saturday to take on Longford. The away side will be hoping to bounce back from a disappointing display in defeat to Donegal in the Ulster SFC semi-final.

Antrim, who saw off Louth impressively in the qualifiers over the weekend, will play their Round Two tie against Kildare at Corrigan Park on the Saturday at three o'clock, subject to a venue inspection and safety certification.

On the same day, Derry and Laois will meet at Owenbeg at 5pm, Jack Cooney's Westmeath host Limerick at TEG Cusack Park in Mullingar from 6pm, and Terry Hyland's Leitrim will host Clare in Carrick-on-Shannon, also from six o'clock.

The only game down for decision on Sunday June 23rd is Offaly's home tie with Sligo in Tullamore, with that one underway at 2pm.

Meanwhile the GAA have also announced a hurling triple-header for Croke Park on Saturday 22nd, with the finals of the Lory Meagher, Christy Ring, and Nicky Rackard Cups all down for decision across the afternoon.
