The Round 1A and Round 1B football draws saw 18 counties involved with two remaining provincial quarter-finals set to take place next weekend.

The losers of those games between Westmeath and Offaly in Leinster, and the Ulster clash of Cavan and Monaghan, will face each other.

There’s an all-Ulster clash in Round 1B between Armagh and Fermanagh while there are two Leinster battles in Round 1A.

In hurling the winners of next Saturday’s Christy Ring Cup final between Carlow and Antrim, will take on Laois at the preliminary round stage. Westmeath have received a bye to Round 1.
