Wexford and Offaly will square off once again having been drawn together in the preliminary round of the inaugural Tailteann Cup. The former prevailed by three points last month during the Leinster championship but hostilities will be renewed after GAA president Larry McCarthy presided over the new competition's inaugural draw.
Wicklow and Waterford will face each other in the one other preliminary match to be played next weekend before the first round of both the northern and southern sections kicks off. All sides were split into those two respective groups ahead of the draw.
Cavan will take on Down in an all-Ulster clash in that northern section while London travel over to face Sligo after their impressive league campaign. Laois vs Westmeath and Carlow vs Tipperary headline the first round southern section schedule.
All first round games are due to take place on the weekend of the 28th/29th May. The teams drawn first have home advantage up to the semi-finals which will be held in Croke Park.
New York was given a first round bye.
