Armagh handed toughest task in round 4 qualifier draw
And then there were 12.
The All-Ireland football championship has reached the nitty-gritty with round separating Gaels from the launch of the hotly-anticipated Super 8 series.
With Galway, Donegal, Dublin and Kerry having already booked their places in the quarter-final group stages, they now await the winners of the Round 4 qualifiers between the sides that have come through the backdoor and the provincial final losers.
On Monday morning, the draw took place and threw up a couple of spicy encounters.
Roscommon v Armagh
Fermanagh v Kildare
Cork v Tyrone
Laois v Monaghan
The games will take place this weekend coming, July 7/8, and will be held at neutral venues.
Croke Park, however, will be out of commission owing to good ol' Michael Buble.
It means the Super 8 groups have also become clear and they are looking interesting.
Dublin won't have three home games in the Super 8s, and their away trip looks like a real clinker https://t.co/UVx3mXZGXp
