Dubs drawn at home to Armagh

The draw for the third round of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship qualifiers took place at Semple Stadium this evening, following the Munster SHC final.

The tie of the round will see Dublin, with home advantage, put their Championship credentials on the line against Paddy O'Rourke's talented Armagh side.

Dublin did enough to pull through for a 1-21 to 1-13 victory over Tipperary at Croke Park yesterday, while Armagh did likewise when ending Fermanagh's hopes with a 0-11 to 0-07 defeat in Enniskillen today.

Cork, who enjoyed a facile 1-19 to 0-4 victory over Cavan, will be on the road to a Wexford outfit that upset Galway in Salthill yesterday.

After two home draws, Kildare will have to travel in the next round.

Kieran McGeeney's men have been drawn away to Derry, the conquerors of Westmeath, who will hope to have Paddy Bradley back on board.

The final game will see Offaly entertain Down, with the Faithfuls having accounted for Waterford at home yesterday. Down will travel south buoyed by their 1-14 to 1-10 triumph over surprise package Longford.

All of the round three qualifiers will be played out over the weekend of July 17 and 18.

The GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee will confirm the dates, throw-in times and venues on Monday.
