GAA Football All-Ireland Qualifiers Round 3 draw
Sunday, July 11, 2010
The draw for Round 3 of the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship
Qualifiers has thrown up a number of fascinating ties.
The plum tie, no doubt, is the meeting of Pat Gilroy's Dublin and
Armagh, who enjoyed a four-point win over Fermanagh in the last of the
Round 2 Qualifiers on Sunday.
Both sides have enjoyed provincial dominance in recent years, but find
themselves plotting a course to the GAA All-Ireland quarter-finals after
early defeats in their respective provincial competitions.
Dublin enjoyed a reasonably comfortable win over Tipperary on Saturday
and will have home advantage again next weekend against Paddy O'Rourke's
Cork, who demolished Cavan on Saturday, will travel to meet a Wexford
side buoyed by a shock win over Galway at Pearse Stadium.
Elsewhere, Kieran McGeeney's Kildare travel to Derry for what promises
to be a tough, evenly matched encounter.
The final ties sees Tom Cribbin's Offaly take on Down - who beat
Longford in Pairc Esler on Saturday - at home.
