The draw for Round 1 of the qualifiers is set to take place next Monday morning. The draw will be held on RTÉ Radio One’s Morning Ireland show at 8.35am and it’s an open draw among the eight teams involved, with the first team picked from each pairing having home advantage.
The draw features three teams from Ulster (Armagh, Monaghan and Tyrone), two each from Leinster (Louth and Meath) and Munster (Clare and Cork) as well as ourselves as the sole Connacht county. It’s a mixed bag in terms of how tough potential opponents might be and, depending how the draw goes, we could be faced with either a handy enough assignment or else an extremely tough proposition on the first weekend in June.
So, what do you reckon – which of the seven would you like us to pull from the hat on Monday morning?
