Uncertainty remains over venue for Cork-Limerick football qualifier

Elsewhere the losers of Tyrone-Cavan face a 6-day turnaround against Carlow.

SUPPORTERS ARE STILL in the dark over where the meeting of Limerick and Cork in Round 2B of the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers will take place on Saturday, July 9.

Limerick were drawn out of the hat first, which would normally give them home advantage. But the two counties have a home and away agreement, and when they last met in a football qualifier in 2010, Limerick were at home in the Gaelic Grounds.

The GAA are likely to confirm venue next Monday after this weekend’s hurling qualifiers which both Cork and Limerick are playing in.

There remains the possibility that Cork and Limerick could meet in a Round 2 hurling game on July 9, if both teams win their Round 1 games on Saturday. In such a scenario, a double header with both games is a strong possibility.

Meanwhile, an extra incentive has been added to the Tyrone-Cavan Ulster SFC semi-final replay with the news that the losers will enter the qualifiers just six days later.

Whichever team is defeated in Clones on Sunday will host Carlow at home in Round 2A of the backdoor the following Saturday.

The full details for Kildare-Offaly in Newbridge and Mayo-Fermanagh in Castlebar are yet to be confirmed.
