Brian Cody's Kilkenny have been drawn against Limerick in the first round of the All-Ireland Hurling Championship qualifiers.

It's a repeat of the 2014 championship semi-final and the Cats will have home advantage for the tie.

Elsewhere, Dublin will play Laois in an all-Leinster affair with Offaly taking on Waterford and Tipperary hosting Westmeath. 

The matches are due to be played this weekend with venues and times to be confirmed.
