Qualifiers draw

 

 

Sunday, 29 June 2008 18:55

The first round of the GAA All-Ireland Football Championship Qualifiers threw up some mouth-watering clashes, with the all-Ulster tie between Monaghan and Derry perhaps the pick of the bunch.

 

Louth will also get the chance to avenge their 2006 replay defeat to

Ulster giants Tyrone, while Donegal v Roscommon and Limerick v Meath

also have the makings of intriguing encounters.

 

In the Tommy Murphy Cup quarter-finals, holders Wicklow will host

Waterford, while 2007 Connacht champions Sligo face either Kilkenny or

London.

 

Meanwhile, in round two of the GAA All-Ireland Hurling Championship

Qualifiers, the draw was not kind to underdogs Laois and Antrim, who

face daunting trips to Galway and Waterford.

 

In the third round draw, which was also made at Croke Park today by GAA

President Nickey Brennan, Cork will enjoy home advantage over Dublin,

while Limerick will host Offaly.
