Football and hurling draws on Sunday Game

THE draws for the next rounds of the Bank of Ireland Football and Guinness Hurling Championships will take place tomorrow evening in Thurles and will be broadcast on The Sunday Game.

The football championship Round 2 draw will see one of the eight first round winners Derry, Down, Louth, Longford, Dublin, Offaly, Clare or Fermanagh being drawn to play against one of the eight defeated provincial semi-finalists Roscommon or Leitrim, Mayo or Galway, Tyrone, Cavan, Wexford or Westmeath, Meath, Waterford or Cork.

As usual, teams who have already met in the provincial championships cannot be drawn against each other. Should this happen, the second team drawn will be moved to the next fixture and so on.

There will only be a second round fixture in the hurling championship if Galway are beaten by Down this evening. Should this occur, then tomorrow night's draw will see Galway being drawn to face one of the other three first round winners.

If Galway defeat Down, the hurling championship draw on Sunday night will be for Round 3 and will involve the four first round winners from this weekend's games as well as the defeated Munster and Leinster finalists being drawn to play each other in an open draw situation. Teams who have already met in the provincial championships will not be drawn to play each other.

Times, dates and venues for the next round of qualifiers in both the Guinness hurling and Bank of Ireland football championships will be announced on Monday afternoon.
