The GAA have confirmed the venues for this year’s All-Ireland Senior Football Championship quarter-finals – and Dublin look set to play twice at Croke Park.

The new, revamped last eight is being played off in two round-robin groups of four teams. Each is supposed to have one home, one away and one game at a neutral venue, with that neutral venue being Croke Park.

Seven teams have that, but Dublin will play one away – either in Cork or Tyrone in their second match – with their first and third game almost certain to be at GAA Headquarters.

In the final week the Boys in Blue are down to play either Cork or Tyrone on their home patch, but it's unthinkable that they would move this game from Croke Park to 9,000-capacity Parnell Park.

There was speculation that last week’s Newbridge of Nowhere campaign, which allowed Kildare host their round three qualifier game at St Conleth’s Park rather than moving it to Croker, would sway GAA decision makers.

However, the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) have announced the make-up of the Super 8s and the Dubs will have two games at the biggest ground in the country.

Munster and Connacht champions Kerry and Galway respectively have been paired in Group 1 alongside two qualifiers – either Fermanagh or Kildare and either Laois or Monaghan.

Group 2 contains Ulster champions Donegal, Leinster kingpins the Dubs and Cork or Tyrone and Roscommon or Armagh.

The final round of qualifier games are on this weekend to decide the final make-up of the All-Ireland quarter-final group stage.

The three rounds of games will be played over four weekends, starting on 14 and 15 July and finishing on 4 and 5 August with a break on 28 and 29 July.

The first set of games will be played over one weekend in Croke Park.
