The draw for the group stages of the 2023 Tailteann Cup took place on May 2nd.
The 16 counties have been drawn into four seeded groups with each containing four teams. As they did last year, New York will enter the competition at the preliminary quarter-final stage.
Teams have been seeded based on their finishing positions (after promotions and relegations were applied) in the Allianz Football Leagues.

The top team in each group goes straight through to the Tailteann Cup quarter-finals, while the second-placed teams go into the preliminary quarter-finals.
The three third-placed teams with the best records also go into the preliminary quarter-finals, while the third-placed team with the worst record and all fourth-placed teams will be eliminated from the championship.

In the preliminary quarter-finals, which will be played on June 10/11, the second-placed teams in each group will be drawn to face the best third-placed teams, along with New York. The second-placed teams will have home advantage, and ties - as will be the case for the quarter-finals and semi-finals - are subject to the avoidance of repeat pairings from the group stage.
In the quarter-finals, which will be played on June 17/18, the four group winners will play the winners of the preliminary quarter-final games. Group winners will have home advantage.
The Tailteann Cup semi-finals will be played on June 24/25 and the final on July 15/16. All games in the knockout phase will be played under winner-on-the-day rules.
