Tipperary face a long trip north as they look to bounce back from a surprise defeat to Limerick and get their season back on track when they meet Down in the qualifiers.

However, it is the all-Ulster clash of Monaghan and Fermanagh which is the pick of the first round ties.

After a heavy 14-point defeat to Tyrone yesterday, Antrim face a Louth side who had a humbling loss to Dublin at the weekend. The Wee County do have a win under their belt in Championship 2019 however, they defeated Wexford in the preliminary round in Leinster.

The Yellowbellies host Derry as they look to extend their season.

Division 3 champions Westmeath look to get back on track when they face Waterford.

Elsewhere, Offaly host London, there is an all Division 4 clash between Leitrim and Wicklow, and Carlow await the losers of the Kildare v Longford replay.
