Following a pulsating weekend of gaelic football action, the draw for the next round of the All-Ireland qualifiers has been made, with the pairings revealed for 3a and 3b.
Sligo, Clare, Cavan, Derry, Longford, Cork, Mayo and Kildare have all learned their fate, after wins this weekend.
Longford were the story of the weekend, after an impressive win over Monaghan.
Meanwhile, Mayo were given the fright of their lives by Fermanagh, but managed to fight back to turn around a six point deficit.
Derry were another side to come back in the second half, at home to Meath, while Cork were full value for a facile win over Limerick in Thurles.
The draw was made this morning on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland.
Draw in full (home teams named first):
3a: Cavan vs Derry.
3a: Sligo vs Clare.
3b: Mayo vs Kildare.
3b: Longford vs Cork.
Mayo and Cork will be pleased to have avoided each other, while the all-Ulster clash of Cavan vs Derry is probably tie of the round. Both sides were defeated in their provincial championship by Tyrone, but are confident of negotiating a path through to the All-Ireland quarter-finals.
Dates, times and venues for the matches will be announced later today by the CCCC.
