Dublin open title defence on the road

All-Ireland champions Dublin will begin the defence of their senior football title against either Louth or Wexford.

The draw for the 2019 All-Ireland Football and Hurling Championships took place on Thursday with some intriguing fixtures across both codes.

The four-time defending champions will open their campaign away from Croke Park with Jim Gavin's side drawn against the winners of the game between Louth and Wexford.

Kildare could be Dublin's semi-final opponents if they overcome Wicklow in the preliminary and then account for Longford the quarter-finals. Elsewhere, Offaly and Meath will meet with the winners going on to face Carlow.

In Ulster this year's beaten finalists Tyrone will meet Derry before the quarter-final stage with the winners going on to face Antrim. Reigning champions Donegal begin away to Fermanagh, a repeat of last year's final, while Monaghan take on Cavan.

Last year's Connacht champions Galway open their title defence at Ruislip where they will face London as James Horan's Mayo, who are on the opposite side of the draw, must make the trip to New York.

The winners of the game between Mayo and New York will meet Roscommon or Leitrim while Galway or London will take on Sligo.

Kerry await the winners of the game between Clare and Waterford in Munster with Cork set to meet either Tipperary or Limerick.

Galway will host Carlow and Wexford for the first two games in the 2019 Leinster hurling championship round-robin before hitting the road to face Kilkenny and Dublin, while Wexford will begin their campaign away to Dublin and Galway ahead of home ties against Carlow and Kilkenny.

In a change to this year, an extra week has been introduced to ensure teams doe not have to play on four successive weekends.
