THE DRAWS FOR the 2021 All-Ireland senior championships will take place early next week as the new GAA season inches into view.

The draws for both codes will be made across Monday and Tuesday of next week, starting with the pairings for the Munster senior football championship, which will be made following the 7.30am news on RTÉ Radio 1.

The draw for the Munster hurling championship will follow an hour later at around 8.35am.

Next up will be the draw for the Connacht football championship, which will be made live on Monday’s Six One news on RTÉ One.

Tuesday will see the draw for the Leinster football championship following the 7.30am news on Radio 1, with the Leinster hurling draw to follow the 8.30am slot.

The draw for the Ulster football championship will then take place on Tuesday’s Six One news.

This year’s All-Ireland senior football championship will once again follow a straight knock-out format, although the back-door qualifier system will be in place for the hurling championship.

The Leinster and Munster hurling championship are due to start on the weekend of 26/27 June, with the provincial football championships set to get underway the same weekend.
