The GAA confirmed the dates for the 2022 season.
The GAA have confirmed all of the fixture dates ahead of the 2022 GAA season, with the National League set to begin in January.
The 2022 inter-county season has been shortened to a 26-week campaign, with the All-Ireland series set to come to a close in July, rather than its usual Autumn conclusion.
In addition, there will be no replays up until the All-Ireland finals – with each game being a straight knock-out tie.
While the provincial draws were made, the league fixtures have since been revealed with Dublin to begin their season with a clash against Armagh at Croke Park. Meanwhile, reigning All-Ireland champions Tyrone take on Monaghan in their opening day clash.
All-Ireland SHC holders Limerick will begin their 2022 campaign against Wexford.
