Down have been drawn to face Clare away in their opening All-Ireland Football qualifier on 25 June.

Antrim will take on Westmeath at Casement Park while Fermanagh face a potentially tricky trip to London, who ran Mayo close in the Connacht SFC.

Cavan, outclassed by Donegal on Sunday, will be at home to Longford while Monaghan must travel to Offaly.

The tie of the round is Louth's clash with Meath - a repeat of last year's controversial Leinster Final.

In other ties, Laois will host Tipperary with Wicklow up against Sligo.

Venues and times for the 25 June games are scheduled to be announced by the GAA's Competitions Control Committee on Monday.
