February 16, 2011

By Staff Reporter

With losing provincial finalists Dublin and Cork going into the hat along with Mayo and Cavan, the draw for the fourth round of the All-Ireland football qualifying series has thrown up several tantalizing clashes. Top of the bill at Croke Park on Sunday will be Cork’s game against Galway, to be followed at the same venue by Dublin’s first championship match against in-form Sligo.

Derry are set to take on Cavan in an all-Ulster game at Clones, also on Sunday, while Westmeath and Mayo prepare to do battle at Hyde Park on Saturday.
