All-Ireland SFC Qualifiers Round 1B
Antrim v Limerick

Antrim were offered the chance of playing this game at Croke Park as part of a double-header with the county's Christy Ring final replay with Meath, but they chose to keep it at home in Corrigan Park - their temporary base while Casement Park is closed for redevelopment. Their previous engagement at Headquarters ended in Division 4 final defeat (above) to Louth a few months back.

Neither of these teams impressed in their provincial exits, but the home team seem in better shape.

Limerick are without the likes of Cian Sheehan, Danny Neville, Paul WhIte, Tom Lee, Cillian Fahy and Iain Corbett due to, variously, summer moves to the US, travel commitments and injury.

Down v Longford

Down will be trying to pick themselves up following what was a record Ulster quarter-final defeat to Monaghan (above) recently - 19 points the margin in the end.

Longford were well off the mark themselves, though their eight-point defeat by Offaly in Leinster might not have been as psychologically damaging.

Whichever team can dust themselves off the quickest should win here and the home team will be hoping that the young players they gave Championship debuts to the last day will have found their feet at this level.

Offaly v London

Offaly's record in the qualifiers doesn't make for particularly pretty reading for the Faithful County's fans, though to be drawn against London offers them a chance to improve their numbers.

Following a rare Leinster win over Longford, they lost a one-point game against Westmeath the last day out. Midfielder Niall Smith is missing following his red card in that game.

London, though, are football's whipping boys and they particularly struggle when they have to head out on the road.

Wexford v Fermanagh

Given the number of players they have out injured, including star attacker Ciarán Lyng, Wexford will be relieved to have home advantage in this game.

They lost by a point in controversial circumstances in a low-scoring and defensive Leinster quarter-final to Kildare most recently and will be looking to add more attacking threat to their game.

Fermanagh got themselves into a position where they looked set to stretch Donegal in their Ulster quarter-final (above), but a missed penalty at the end of the first half against 14 men saw the wheels fall off.

They have played in, and won, a few more big games than this current Wexford outfit.

Monaghan v Donegal -  Ulster SFC semi-final

This is the fourth Ulster Championship meeting of these teams in a row, with Monaghan having won two of them, taking the Ulster title on each occasion.

For that reason, Donegal will have revenge on their mind while whichever team loses will see their credentials as genuine Croke Park contenders damaged.

Donegal full-back Neil McGee is suspended, meaning manager Rory Gallagher will have to find a new man-maker for Monaghan danger-man Conor McManus (above).

These are two top flight teams who feel that they can still be involved at the business end of the Championship, making this the first really big football game of the summer.

Antrim v Meath – Christy Ring Cup final replay

This is a replay that should never have happened, but as politicians like to say - we are where we are.

The first time these teams met (above) a score-keeping error on the part of the match officials meant that Meath were awarded a one-point game. After much wrangling and negotiation, this rematch takes place at GAA Headquarters three weeks later.

The Royals were underdogs the last day, making a repeat all the more difficult, and Antrim are money-on favourites once again.

Kildare v Westmeath – Leinster SFC semi-final

Westmeath are aiming to get to back-to-back Leinster finals, following on from their roller-coaster 2015 which included a stunning come-from-behind provincial semi-final win over Meath and their tanking by Dublin in the decider.

They had a wretched League campaign, getting relegated from Division 3 at the same time as Kildare topped the group and earned promotion back to the second flight. They followed that win a Leinster win over Offaly in Mullingar to get the show back on the road.

Kildare were highly conservative in their approach against Wexford in their Championship opener and it got them the win they needed.

Dublin v Meath – Leinster SFC semi-final

A meeting of these football heavyweights used to be one of the great occasions of the GAA calendar, but the gulf in class between these two sides has taken the gloss off this local derby.

The Dubs are expected to cruise though Leinster in third gear, only shifting upwards once the knock-out football rolls around in late July and early August. Meath appear a long way off a return to their glory days and for some of their fans a gutsy showing will be a good start.

Football isn't always straightforward - Mayo were the latest team to find that out last weekend - but anything other than a convincing Dubs win would leave eyebrows raised.
