2019 All-Ireland Football Championship

Connacht Football Championship Draw:

With Mayo already scheduled to travel to New York and Galway heading to London, both of the Connacht giants have a chance of meeting in the 2019 provincial final.

In one semi-final, New York / Mayo will take on Leitrim / Roscommon. While in the alternate semi, London / Galway will take on Paul Taylor's Sligo.

It was a draw that left Leitrim's Emlyn Mulligan feeling particular grim about the year ahead for his county.

Leinster Football Championship Draw:

Although looking a foregone conclusion even at this early stage, the Leinster football championship will continue on anyway.

Largely a process of avoiding Dublin for as long as possible, in all likelihood, one of Meath/Offaly, Carlow, Westmeath or Laois are likely to meet them in Croke Park on Leinster final day.

Carlow's Paul Broderick seemed content enough that they may not have to entertain thoughts of Jim Gavin's side until a potential final pairing.

Ulster Football Championship Draw:

By far the most intriguing of the provincial draws made tonight, Ulster has thrown up four different winners over the last decade.

An open draw, Tyrone will take on Derry in the preliminary round of the Ulster championship this time out. The holders Donegal will meet last year's beaten finalist Fermanagh in the quarter-final stage in 2019.

Munster Football Championship Draw:

Peter Keane will be looking to make it 7-in-a-row in Munster this year, and if that is to be the case his Kerry side may well have to take on Cork once more in a provincial final - although after last year's final this may not fill the former minor manager with too much dread.

To get that far, Kerry will have to over come the winners of Clare vs Waterford. While on the other side of the draw, Cork will play the winner of Tipperary vs Limerick.
