Fixture details confirmed for All-Ireland senior football semi-finals

The draw was conducted on RTÉ following Dublin’s quarter-final victory over Mayo.

ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS KERRY will face Derry in the All-Ireland Football Championship semi-finals, while Dublin will meet Monaghan in the last four.

The fixture details for the games have been confirmed this evening with Dublin to play Monaghan on Saturday 15 July in Croke Park at 5.30pm. The Tailteann Cup final between Meath and Down will act as the curtain-raiser at 3pm.

Kerry will meet Derry in the second semi-final on Sunday 16 July in Croke Park at 4pm, the All-Ireland junior football final will precede that game at 1.30pm.

The draw was conducted live on RTÉ Two following Dublin’s destruction of Mayo in the weekend’s final quarter-final.

Because Derry and Monaghan previously met in this year’s championship, they could each only draw Kerry and Dublin. As such, the two Ulster counties were placed in the same pot, with Kerry and Dublin were placed in another.

The pairings could result in the first all-Ulster showpiece since 2003, or they could lead to another Kerry-Dublin final.
