Super 8

Fans from four counties can start making plans around that weekend now.

There are still 12 counties vying for the final four places in the 2019 All-Ireland quarter finals, or Super 8s. As provincial title winners, Donegal, Kerry, Dublin and Roscommon are already qualified and lying in wait.

The draw for Round 3 of the Qualifiers took place on Monday morning, with Mayo versus Armagh the pick of the upcoming ties:

  • Mayo v Armagh, Castlebar
  • Kildare v Tyrone, Newbridge
  • Westmeath v Clare, Mullingar
  • Laois v Offaly, Portlaoise

The winners of those games, this weekend, will take on the losing provincial finalists over July 6-7 for the final four spots in the quarter final series.

Two sets of Super 8 fixtures have now been confirmed, so Dublin, Kerry, Roscommon and Donegal fans all know who their counties will be up against, and where, on the July 20-21 weekend.

Croke Park will play host to Kerry vs. Donegal and Dublin – in their ‘neutral venue’ fixture – face Connacht champions Roscommon.

For the opening round of fixtures, played over July 13-14, all four provincial winners are at home. Mayo and Tyrone are the two big-hitters in the qualifiers but there are potential clashes for Kerry and Galway, while Cork could get Dublin at Croke Park if they come through Round 4 of the qualifiers.

The final round of games could see Dublin travelling to Kingspan Breffni Park to taken on Cavan while Kerry could face Meath at Pairc Tailteann on the August 3-4 weekend.
