Fixture details confirmed by GAA

The GAA have today confirmed the fixture details for the next rounds of All-Ireland Senior Hurling and Football Championship qualifiers.

Reigning All-Ireland hurling champions Kilkenny will aim to get their campaign back on track - following their shock Leinster semi-final defeat to Dublin - with a home tie against Tipperary at Nowlan Park at 7pm next Saturday which will be broadcast live on TV3.

The other hurling phase 2 qualifier between Clare and Laois is the first game of a double header at Cusack Park, Ennis on Saturday.

That game is pencilled in for a 3pm start, with the All-Ireland SFC second round qualifier involving the same counties getting underway at 5pm, as Clare manager Mick O'Dwyer faces his former O'Moore charges.

In the other football qualifiers, Galway are at home for the second weekend in succession when they welcome Waterford to Pearse Stadium at 2.30pm on Saturday.

Derry will take on Down at 5pm in Celtic Park as they meet for the second time in this summer's Championship, with Down having overcome the Oak Leafers last time out.

Roscommon will meet Tyrone for the third year in a row in the All-Ireland qualifiers, with the counties set to meet at Dr. Hyde Park at 6pm.

The rest of the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers will take place on Saturday week, involving the teams who were knocked out at the provincial semi-final stage over the past weekend.

There are two all-Leinster pairings with Longford at home once again at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park where they host Wexford at 2pm.

Kieran McGeeney will be hoping his Kildare side can quickly return to winning ways when they host Louth at St. Conleth's Park, Newbridge at 7pm.

There is a 5pm start for the meeting of Leitrim and Armagh in Carrick-on-Shannon, and less than a month after Cavan claimed a 0-13 to 0-11 away victory over Fermanagh in Enniskillen, the sides will meet again at Kingspan Breffni Park. The game at the Cavan town venue has a 7pm throw-in.

Meanwhile, the Ulster SHC semi-final replay between Derry and Down will form part of a double header at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh next Sunday.

The replay will take place at 3.30pm, and will be proceeded by the Ulster minor hurling final between Down and Armagh at 1.30pm. Referees for all the games will be confirmed later today.
