Armagh to host Tyrone in the All-Ireland SFC Qualifiers

Armagh were winners over Tyrone in their Allianz League meeting in February but who will come out on top when the two sides meet the All-Ireland Qualifiers in June? 

All-Ireland champions Tyrone will face Armagh at the Athletic Grounds on Sunday, June 5 in the first round of the All-Ireland Qualifiers following Monday morning's draw.

The Red Hands found themselves in Qualifiers following defeat to Derry in the Ulster quarter-final while Armagh's defeat to Donegal sent them through the back door.

Following Monday morning's draw, times and venues were confirmed this afternoon. The eagerly awaited clash between Armagh and Tyrone will be the only one of the ties played on the Sunday and will be broadcast live on RTÉ television.

Last year's beaten All-Ireland finalists Mayo face Monaghan in another mouthwatering clash. That game will take place on Saturday June 4 with a 4pm throw-in at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park in Castlebar.

With Division Three and Four teams competing in the Tailteann Cup this season, the Qualifiers feature the teams from the top two divisions who have been knocked out of their provincial championships.

The remaining two ties see Mickey Harte's Louth side travel to Cork on Saturday June 4 for a 2pm throw-in at Páirc Uí Chaiomh while later that day, Clare will host Meath in Ennis (5pm).
