The final draw of the 2016 Football Qualifiers has taken place, and Mayo and Donegal have been kept apart in the Round 4B side of the draw.

In 4A, Clare will face Connacht opposition for the second round in a row. After beating Sligo in Markievicz Park on Saturday, the Munster side will now meet Roscommon, with a quarter-final place at stake for the winners.

An all-Munster clash was averted, by that draw meaning the Tipperary were drawn against Derry, after they defeated Cavan in Kingspan Breffni Park at the weekend.  

The 4B side of the draw looks invariably tougher, and Cork's clash with Donegal is undoubtedly the tie of the round. The Ulster side are playing in the qualifiers for only the third time since 2011. 

Mayo have been handed another favourable draw after their early Connacht exit. They were drawn against Westmeath. The Leinster side lost Sunday's Provincial final to Dublin in Croke Park.

The GAA will confirm dates, times and venues for all four games on Monday afternoon.
