Connacht GAA initially announced that the final would be replayed in Castlebar on Saturday, but Mayo will host Kildare at the venue in the qualifiers instead.

Sky Sports will broadcast the Saturday night qualifier live, while there will be no live coverage of Roscommon-Galway.

Roscommon are entitled to home advantage for the replay but they’ll head to Mayo as Dr. Hyde Park is undergoing redevelopment.
