Massive games in store for Division One teams in All-Ireland qualifiers


Each of the four Division One teams will play another top tier county in the first round of the All-Ireland qualifiers.

Four extremely competitive All-Ireland qualifiers await Gaelic football supporters as Mayo are set to play Monaghan, Armagh will take on Tyrone, Clare will host Meath while Cork will face Louth.

Clare, Meath, Cork and Louth will all be quite happy with the draw, as they avoided games against Division One opposition, while Mayo, Monaghan, Armagh and Tyrone will need to be at their best to progress.

Mayo, Clare, Cork and Armagh will have home advantage, as they were picked out of the bowl before their opposition, although it’s fair to say that each of the four games could go either way.

Two Division One counties will not progress.

All-Ireland champions Tyrone must travel away from home to take on fierce rivals Armagh, in what will be the most significant championship match the two have played against each other in quite a few years.

Armagh won by six points when they played Tyrone in this year’s ill-tempered league encounter and they will be hoping to replicate that performance as they aim to end the reigning All-Ireland champions’ summer early.

Mayo claimed a narrow two-point win against Monaghan in their league encounter this year in Clones, and the Westerners will have home advantage in two weeks’ time.

Meath beat Clare by a single point when they played in Division Two of the Allianz Leagues this year, while Cork and Louth will play each other for the first time in 2022, as the latter secured promotion from Division Three.
