Dublin will begin their Leinster and All-Ireland football championship defence against the winners of Louth and Wexford.

Jim Gavin’s team will enter the Leinster championship at the quarter-final stage, before a possible semi-final against the winner of Wicklow and Kildare’s quarter-final against Longford.

Last year’s All-Ireland finalists, Tyrone, will face local rivals Derry in the Ulster preliminary round. The winner will take on Antrim in the quarter-final. On the other side of the draw will be Down, Armagh, Fermanagh and Donegal.

In Connacht, assuming Galway and Mayo overcome their respective trips to London and New York, the Tribesmen will face Sligo in one semi-final. And James Horan’s Mayo will face the winner of Roscommon and Leitrim in the other.

In Munster, Kerry and Cork are set up to meet in another provincial final. Peter Keane’s first championship match in charge of the Kingdom will be against the winner of Clare and Waterford. While if Tipperary can overcome Limerick they’ll renew rivalries with Cork in the other semi-final.
