GAA qualifier draws to take place on Sunday

The draw for the next round of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship qualifiers will take place in Thurles at 6.45pm on Sunday evening, it has been announced.

There will also be a draw for the next phase of the hurling qualifiers, if required.

The draw for Round 3 of the football qualifiers will involve the eight winning teams from Round 2, with the first team drawn, in each instance, being entitled to home advantage.

The pairings for phase 3 of the hurling qualifiers will also be finalised on Sunday evening. The draw will see a winning team from phase 1 (Tipperary and Antrim) being pitted against a winning team from phase 2 (Dublin/Clare and Offaly/Limerick).

A draw will only be required to confirm pairings if Limerick beat Offaly, as Offaly have already played Antrim in the Leinster Championship and under rule they cannot meet again at this stage of the competition.

The draw will be televised live on RTÉ Two. The GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee will meet on Monday when all throw-in times, dates and venues for the various qualifier games will be confirmed.
