Much Anticipated Draws For Hurling And Football Qualifiers Made


One of the most anticipated draws in the history of hurling qualifiers was made this morning on RTÉ Radio 1, with three of last year’s All-Ireland semi-finalists involved.

The unlikely run of Cork to the Munster final has left Tipperary and Waterford dumped into the back door, while a Wexford renaissance ensured that Kilkenny must face the qualifier route for the first time since 2013.

Offaly, Westmeath and Dublin are the other sides in the Leinster pot, while Limerick and Laois, who overcame Christy Ring Cup winners Carlow yesterday, are in the other pot.

Here is the draw for the first round of the hurling qualifiers:

Dublin vs Laois

Kilkenny vs Limerick

Offaly vs Waterford

Tipperary vs Westmeath

Times/venues to be confirmed this afternoon by the CCCC.

While the big guns were kept apart, the next round promises to be a cracker should there be no major upsets in the first round.


In the draw for Round 2B of the football qualifiers, the four winners of this weekend’s tie were in the mix; Wexford, Armagh, Carlow and Cavan. They were thrown in against four beaten provincial semi-finalists in Tipperary, Westmeath, Leitrim and Monaghan.

Draw for Round 2B of the football qualifiers:

Westmeath vs Armagh

Wexford vs Monaghan

Carlow vs Leitrim

Cavan vs Tipperary

Times/venues to be confirmed this afternoon by the CCCC.
