We’re back in the hat in the morning, this time for the All-Ireland quarter-final draw.
For the draw, the four provincial champions – Derry, Dublin, Galway and Kerry – will be in one bowl while the four teams to emerge from the qualifiers – ourselves, Cork, Clare and Armagh – will be in the other one.
The GAA issued a statement yesterday (here) explaining how the draw will be conducted and how they’re going to look to avoid, where possible, any repeat pairings. Two such draws are possible – Cork/Kerry and Mayo/Galway – and so the GAA will be looking to avoid these match-ups again.
Depending on how the balls come out of the bowl, however, neither of these draws, however unlikely, can be definitively ruled out. For this reason, despite the fact that the chance of our drawing them are remote in the extreme, I’ve included Galway in the poll below which invites you to express a preference for our All-Ireland quarter-final opponents.
So, then, which of them would you like us to pull from the hat in the morning?
