The Round 2A Qualifier Draw Throws Up Banana Skins For Mayo & Donegal

The Round 2A Qualifier Draw Throws Up Banana Skins For Mayo & Donegal

The qualifier draw for Round 2A of the All-Ireland Football Championship was made on Morning Ireland earlier. The first four provincial semi-final losers were on one side, with the victors from Round 1A awaiting them on the other.

It's thrown up a couple of interesting ties.

Meath were soundly beaten by Kildare yesterday. Andy McEntee's side will host Sligo in Pairc Tailteann.

Donegal, who were comprehensively outplayed by Mickey Harte's Tyrone in Clones yesterday, will come up against qualifier kings Longford in Ballybofey.

Mayo's hunt for Sam Maguire continues through the qualifiers for the second year in a row. They will welcome Derry to Castlebar.

Laois will meet Clare in Portlaoise in the final tie.
