After winning their second ever Football Qualifier on Sunday afternoon, Leitrim have been rewarded with a trip to Connacht rivals Sligo in Round 2A of the Football Qualifiers.

The two teams have not met in the Championship since 2011. On that occasion, Letirim beat Sligo in Markievicz Park by three points. 

Laois, fresh off their three point win over Armagh, meet Clare. The pairing is identical to the Hurling Qualifiers draw that happened also on Monday morning.

The other two games, are dependent on what happens in the next two weekends in the Leinster and Ulster semi-finals. The losers of Dublin's game with Meath will travel north to Derry.

After their draw on Sunday, the loser of the Cavan-Tyrone replay will be at home to Carlow.
