MONDAY MORNING IS big for the All-Ireland senior hurling and football championships.

The draw for round 3B and 4A of the football qualifiers will be made, along with the All-Ireland hurling quarter-final pairings.

The draw will take place live on RTE Radio 1 after the 8.30am news and will also be streamed live on www.gaa.ie

Here’s how it will all pan out:

Football – Round 3B

These games are scheduled to take place on Saturday 18 July.

This draw involves the four winning teams from Round 2B (Tyrone/Meath, Armagh/Galway, Derry/Wexford and Tipperary/Louth).

The first team drawn has home advantage.

Football – Round 4A

These games are scheduled to take place Saturday, 25 July.

This draw involves the winners from Round 3A (Kildare/Longford and Fermanagh/Roscommon) in bowl 1.

The beaten Leinster and Munster finalists (Kerry/Cork and Westmeath/Dublin) will be placed in bowl 2.

This draw is subject to avoidance of repeat pairings, i.e. Kildare v Dublin or Longford v Dublin.  If either of these repeat pairings are possible there is no draw.

The Round 2 winners (Clare/Cork and Dublin/Limerick) will be placed in bowl 2.

This draw is subject to avoidance of repeat pairings, i.e. Tipperary V Limerick or Waterford V Cork.  If either of these repeat pairings are possible there is no draw.
