Dublin to begin 2017 Championship with trip away from Croke Park

Dublin will play Championship football away from Croke Park in 2017.

The Leinster Council have confirmed the dates and venues for next year's Football Championship.

The All-Ireland champions enter the fray at the quarter-final stage in the first weekend in June and will face the winner of the Wexford / Carlow first-round clash.

If it's Wexford, the game will be set for Wexford Park, while O'Moore Park in Portlaoise will be the venue for a prospective meeting with Carlow.

In fact, none of next year's Leinster quarter-finals have been set for Croke Park.

The Leinster Championship begins with three first round matches on Sunday, May 21st.
