Leitrim on the road for Qualifiers Rd 2

The draw for Round 2 of the GAA Football All-Ireland Qualifiers has thrown up a number of fascinating ties.

Leitrim will have to travel this year to either Newbridge or Casement Park for their next encounter which is in Round 2 of the qualifiers.  Kildare and Antrim must fight it out this weekend in Casement park (fixture to be confirmed) in a replay of last Saturday evenings Round 1 drawnÓgame in Newbridge to determine Leitrims opposition.  Earlier in the championship Kildare lost to Louth and Antrim lost to Tyrone in their respective provincial rounds.

Dublin, whose five-year unbeaten run in Leinster was ended by Meath on Sunday, face Tipperary at home.

Last years beaten All-Ireland finalists, Cork, have a home tie against Cavan, who earned their place in the draw with a stunning comeback win over Wicklow at Breffni Park on Saturday night.

The plum draw of the round sees Ulster rivals Fermanagh take on Armagh at Brewster Park in a repeat of the 2008 provincial final, which the Orchard County won after a replay.
