Ulster duo lined up in Croker double bill

The Central Competitions Control Committee has confirmed that both Tyrone and Donegal will be in action at Croke Park on Saturday.

The Red Hands will meet Roscommon in the outstanding fourth round qualifier at 4pm while Donegal will take on Kieran McGeeney's high-flying Kildare side in the first of the quarter-finals at 6pm.

Then on Sunday two more quarter-finals will be staged when Kerry and Limerick face off at 2pm while Cork and Mayo cross swords at 4pm.

And it has also been confirmed that Dublin will meet the winners of the Tyrone v Roscommon game in the last of the quarter-finals in Croke Park on Saturday week (August 6) at 7pm.

This coming Saturday too will see Ulster's two representatives in the last eight of the All-Ireland Minor Football championship attempt to take a big step towards the semi-finals.

Armagh will meet Roscommon at Croke Park (2pm) while Cavan will take on Galway at Pearse Park, Longford (3pm).

With Tyrone and Donegal, both of whom enjoy huge support, sharing the Headquarters double bill on Saturday, Croke Park is expected to house one of its biggest crowds of the year to date.
