All-Ireland SFC draw


Dublin's quest for a third All-Ireland SHC in succession begins with a Leinster SFC quarter-final against Carlow or Wexford.

Jim Gavin's men will once again be favourites to lift the provincial crown but the will have to overcome Carlow or Wexford in the quarter-finals before facing either Offaly or Westmeath in the last four.

Louth and Wicklow will meet in the first round with the winners going on to face Meath in the quarter-final, while Kildare will face the winners of the first round meeting of Laois and Longford. The winner of that quarter-final will face the winners of the Meath quarter-final.

Beaten All-Ireland finalists Mayo await the winners of the preliminary round clash between Sligo and New York with the winners going on to meet Galway in the Connacht final, while Roscommon will face either Leitrim or London in the other semi-final.

In Munster, Kerry and Cork could meet in the provincial decider after they were drawn on opposites of the draw. Reigning Munster champions Kerry received a bye into the semi-finals and they await the winners of the quarter-final clash between Limerick and Clare.

Cork face Waterford in the quarter-finals with the winners facing this year's surprise package Tipperary.

The standout match in the Ulster SFC is the quarter-final meeting of Derry and Tyrone with the winners going on to face either Donegal or Antrim in the last four.

Monaghan and Fermanagh have been drawn to face each other in the preliminary round. The winners face Cavan in the quarter-finals with Down or Armagh their opponents in the semi-finals.
