The Dublin footballers will make a return trip to Croke Park for their All-Ireland SFC second round qualifier against Tipperary on Saturday week (July 10).

Pat Gilroy's charges, who lost out to Meath in yesterday's Leinster semi-final, will take on Tipperary at 6pm, with the game broadcast live on TV3.

The football contest will be preceded by the All-Ireland SHC phase 2 qualifier tie between Dublin and Clare (throw-in 4pm), which will be shown live on RTE Television.

The hurling encounter pits Dublin manager Anthony Daly against his native county whom he captained to All-Ireland glory in 1995 and 1997.

There are 5pm starts on Saturday week for the All-Ireland football qualifiers involving Westmeath and Derry at Cusack Park in Mullingar, and Offaly's clash with Waterford.

The latter game forms part of a double header at O'Connor Park in Tullamore, with the hurlers of Offaly and Limerick meeting in a phase 2 qualifier at 7pm.

There are 7pm starts for the football qualifier between Cork and Cavan at Pairc Ui Chaoimh, and giant-killing Longford's trip to Newry to face Down.

Meanwhile, the all-Ulster qualifier between Fermanagh and Armagh, on Sunday week (July 11), will have a 4pm start at Brewster Park in Enniskillen.

Antrim's SFC first round qualifier replay against Kildare will throw in at 7pm next Saturday at Casement Park.

The winners of that clash will have home advantage on Saturday week for their round 2 meeting with Leitrim. Should Antrim pull through there will be a 5pm throw-in, while if Kildare progress the game will commence at 7pm.

Meanwhile, the losers of next Saturday's Connacht SFC semi-final replay between Sligo and Galway at Markievicz Park (throw-in 6pm) will host Wexford in round 2 of the qualifiers the following weekend. The game will have a 2pm start and will be televised live by RTE.

Next Saturday sees five hurling games down for decision, with RTE showing live coverage of Tipperary's phase 1 qualifier against Wexford at Semple Stadium (throw-in 3.30pm), while Antrim host Carlow at Casement Park (throw-in 5pm) in another mouth-watering qualifier.

Meanwhile, the GAA have teed up a triple-bill of action at Croke Park next Saturday, with the Christy Ring, Nicky Rackard and Lory Meagher Cup finals all taking place.

Kerry will be hoping to win their first Christy Ring Cup title when they take on Westmeath at 4pm. Armagh face London in the Nicky Rackard Cup decider at 2pm, while the day's proceedings at GAA headquarters will get underway at 12 noon when Donegal and Longford contest the Lory Meagher trophy.
