Donegal will face Kildare in the All-Ireland Football quarter-finals while Tyrone will meet Dublin if the Red Hands beat Roscommon next weekend.

Kildare impressively defeated Derry on Saturday and Jim McGuinness' Donegal side will face a difficult task against Kieran McGeeney's Lilywhites.

Tyrone also have a tough tie in prospect against a Dublin side that beat them at the stage stage last year.

In the other last-eight games, Kerry face Limerick with Cork taking on Mayo.

The winners of the Kerry-Limerick clash will then go on to face either All-Ireland champions Cork or Mayo in the semi-finals.

Donegal or Kildare will meet either Dublin, Tyrone or Roscommon in the other All-Ireland semi-final.

The dates and times for the quarter-finals are expected to be announced on Monday.

Kerry and Cork appear to have landed the more favourable draws.

The Kingdom will face a Limerick side that earned a hugely controversial 1-18 to 1-17 win over Wexford on Saturday evening.

Wexford led by three points going into injury-time but Limerick then levelled with a goal and took the victory with an Ian Ryan free which one umpire waved wide.

Referee Derek Fahy consulted with the other umpire before deciding to award the score - much to the consternation of the Wexford players, management and fans.

Wexford goalkeeper Anthony Masterson insisted that Ryan's free "looked like it was a yard wide".

But despite the controversy, Limerick were in Sunday evening's quarter-final draw.

In the hurling semi-finals, Waterford, after their 2-23 to 2-13 win over Galway on Sunday, will take on Kilkenny on 7 August with Tipperary facing Dublin a week later.

Dublin defeated Limerick 3-13 to 0-18 on Sunday.
