The draw for the All-Ireland quarter-finals has thrown up two exciting ties.
Dublin and Tyrone have learned their fate for next Saturday evening. On Saturday night, Armagh and Monaghan won through to the All-Ireland quarter-finals, and as there was no prospect of a repeat pairing in this side of the All-Ireland bracket, a draw had to be made.
Mickey Harte’s Tyrone side blasted their way through the Ulster Championship, easily accounting for Derry, Donegal and Down without truly breaking sweat. They now have their eyes set on the All-Ireland Championship, as they bid to regain Sam Maguire for the first time since 2008.
Dublin romped to a seventh consecutive Leinster title, beating Kildare in the decider. To reach another All-Ireland final, they must beat two Ulster sides on the way.
Here is the draw for the All-Ireland quarter-finals, which will take place in Croke Park next Saturday evening:
Tyrone vs Armagh (4pm)
Dublin vs Monaghan (6pm)
Dublin and Monaghan met in the final round of the league, and it looked like the Farney men would claim a huge scalp at home for much of the game. However, Jim Gavin’s bench proved too strong.
Meanwhile, Tyrone will be hot favourites against their provincial rivals Armagh.
