GAA: Down face Ulster semi repeat against Monaghan and Armagh draw Kildare at Croke Park

Beaten Ulster Championship finalists Down will take on Monaghan for a place in the All Ireland quarter-finals.

The draw for Round 4B of the qualifiers was made on Monday morning and gives Monaghan the chance to avenge their Ulster semi-final defeat to the Mournemen. Meanwhile, Armagh will take on Kildare, providing boss Kieran McGeeney with the opportunity to come up against the side he guided to an All-Ireland semi-final back in 2010.

Both of those fixtures will take place on July 29 at Croke Park, Down first at 5pm and Armagh's game following at 7pm.

The games come with big rewards. The winners will go through to face either defending champions Dublin or Ulster winners Tyrone in the All-Ireland quarter-finals a week later on August 5.

In the other side of the draw, Cork play Mayo while Galway face Donegal in Round 4A, the winners of those two ties earning the chance to play Roscommon or Kerry.
