Mayo Draw Down But Tie Of The Round Sees Monaghan Host Armagh

Mayo will travel to Páirc Esler to take on Down in the second round of this year’s All-Ireland Football Championship Qualifiers.

The tie of the round, however, sees Ulster rivals, Monaghan host Armagh in Clones.

Elsewhere, after defeat to Donegal on Saturday, Tyrone face a trip to Longford as they begin their road through the qualifiers. After defeating Wicklow on Saturday, Leitrim now host Munster outfit Clare in the second round.

Westmeath easily swatted aside the challenge of Waterford yesterday and they now face Limerick at home in the second round.

Antrim had a strong win over Louth on Saturday and have been rewarded with a home tie against heavy-hitters, Kildare, who will be looking to bounce back from their 15-point defeat to Dublin on Sunday.

The Oakleaf County, Derry, will face Laois in a clash that is difficult to call while Offaly and Sligo also cross paths to make up the remainder of the draw.

All second-round games will be played on the weekend of June 22nd and 23rd.
