Armagh's reward for their surprise All-Ireland Football qualifier win over Tyrone is a tricky trip to Roscommon this Saturday [17:00 BST].

Paul Grimley's side should go to Dr Hyde Park full of confidence but they will be facing a Roscommon side that hammered Cavan on Saturday.

In addition, Roscommon defeated Armagh in the last championship meeting between the sides in a 2012 qualifier.

The draw has also pitted Kildare against Clare in Ennis on Saturday.

Kildare earned their place in the next round after an impressive win over Down on Sunday.

The two other ties which will be played as a double-header at Tullamore on 26 July were determined without a draw because Tipperary had already faced Cork in the Munster Championship.

As a result, Tipperary will face beaten Connacht finalists Galway with Sligo taking on the Rebel County, who were well beaten by Kerry in the Munster decider.

The All-Ireland Hurling Championship quarter-finals will see Dublin meeting Tipperary and Limerick playing Wexford or Waterford.

Venues, dates and times will be confirmed by the GAA over the next 24 hours.
