The draw for Round 1 of the Football Qualifiers have taken place with three provincial derbies taking place. 

In Round 1A, there are two all-Leinster clashes with Louth hosting Longford and Wicklow welcoming Laois to Aughrim. Derry face the long journey south to Waterford, while Division 3 rivals Sligo and Antrim meet in Markievicz Park. 

Those games take place on Saturday, June 17th. 

The clash of Round 1 is the all-Ulster clash between Armagh and Fermanagh. Both sides lost their opening matches in the Ulster Championship. 

There are two all-Division 4 clashes between Limerick and Wexford, and Carlow travel to Ruislip to meet London.

One final clash has yet to be decided. The losers of the Westmeath/Offaly game in the Leinster Championship will host the losers of the Cavan/Monaghan game from the Ulster Championship.

All four games in Round 1B take place a week later, on Saturday, June 25th.
