Dublin hurlers face Cork in qualifiers

Hurling and football qualifier draw made

The first round of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship qualifiers will see Cork host Dublin, while Derry footballers will entertain the losers of next weekend's Dublin-Meath clash.

The draw for both codes throws up a number of intriguing ties, with Clare set to host Laois in both hurling and football.

All matches are set for the weekend of July 2-3rd.

The stand-out tie of the hurling draw sees Cork host Dublin as both sides look to bounce back from heavy first round defeats in their respective provinces.

Cork looked lacklustre as they went down by nine points to Tipperary in Semple Stadium, while Dublin were outclassed by Kilkenny.

The remaining hurling ties will see Offaly travel to Wexford, Westmeath host Limerick and Laois travel to Clare.

In round 2A of the football qualifiers, Derry will play host to the losers of this weekend's Dublin-Meath clash.

Sligo will entertain neighbours Leitrim who won just their second ever qualifier game with victory over Waterford yesterday, while Carlow's unenviable prize for beating Wicklow is a trip to the winners of the replay between Cavan and Tyrone who drew 3-07 to 0-16 in an entertaining game in Clones.

The round 1B qualifiers are set for nthis coming weekend, with the draw for the next round set for next Monday.

Confirmation of home venues, times and dates for all the fixtures will be confirmed at a meeting of CCCC this afternoon.
