BEATEN ALL-IRELAND football finalists Mayo will begin next summer against their old rivals Galway after the 2018 Championship draw was conducted this evening.

Meanwhile, Dublin will begin the climb towards what they hope will be a fourth straight Sam Maguire against either Offaly or Wicklow in the Leinster quarter-final.

Connacht SFC 2018

The Tribesmen upset perennial All-Ireland contenders Mayo at the semi-final stage of the Connacht Championship last year before Roscommon emerged as winners in the final.

Roscommon will open their title defence at the semi-final stage against the winners of the Bronx meeting between New York and Leitrim.

Sligo also begin overseas, with the carrot of a clash with Mayo or Galway if they defeat London.
