Dubs in Croker again as GAA fixtures are confirmed

Dublin will play their third successive All-Ireland SFC qualifier at Croke Park when they meet beaten Leinster finalists Louth in the fourth round next Saturday.

The GAA have released the fixture details for next weekend's All-Ireland Senior Hurling and Football Championship matches.

The Dubs, recent winners over Tipperary and Armagh, will be in familiar territory when they face Louth as part of an attractive double header at Croker, the curtain raiser being the clash of Ulster runners-up Monaghan and Kildare.

The Monaghan-Kildare encounter has a 3pm throw-in time and will be broadcast live on RTE TV, while the Dublin v Louth tie starts at 5pm and will be shown live on TV3.

The two other fourth round qualifiers have 7pm starts on Saturday, with Limerick hosting Cork at the Gaelic Grounds, after they won an agreed toss with the Rebels for home advantage. The Munster derby is live on RTE TV.

Kevin Walsh's Sligo side will aim to bounce back from their Connacht final defeat when they battle it out with Down at Kingspan Breffni Park.

Both of the All-Ireland SHC quarter-final matches will take place at Croke Park next Sunday.

Antrim, the conquerors of Dublin, will meet Cork in a 2pm fixture, which will be followed by Tipperary v Galway at 4pm. The two games will be televised live by RTE.

Meanwhile, the All-Ireland MHC quarter-finals have also been pencilled in for Saturday and Sunday. The Waterford v Galway tie kickstarts a triple bill of action at Croke Park on Sunday, with a 12pm start. The previous day, at noon in Crossmaglen, the Antrim minor hurlers will face their Dublin counterparts.
