Four Ulster teams discover fate in draw for Round 4 of All Ireland qualifiers

By this time next week only eight teams will remain in the race to lift Sam Maguire in September and this morning the draw was made for Round 4 of the All-Ireland football qualifiers.

The draw involved the four beaten provincial finallists - Cork, Roscommon, Fermanagh and Laois - being drawn against the Round 3 qualifier victors - Kildare, Monaghan, Tyrone and Armagh.

The draw is as follows:

Fermanagh v Kildare

Laois v Monaghan

Cork v Tyrone

Roscommon v Armagh

The eight counties who qualify for the 'Super 8' phase of the All-Ireland series will be split into two groups of four as follows:

Group 1



Fermanagh or Kildare

Laois or Monaghan

Group 2



Cork or Tyrone

Roscommon or Armagh

The Round Four matches, which will be decided on the day, will be played next weekend (July 7-8), with the CCCC confirming the details this afternoon.

There will be no repeat of last week's 'Newbridge or nowhere' controversy with the games to take place at neutral venues.

Croke Park will be unavailable due to a Michael Bublé concert at GAA headquarters this weekend.
