Carlow have a real chance of progressing further having been drawn with London. Turlough O’Brien’s side have a had a great summer so far, beating Wexford and giving Dublin a rattle in Portlaoise last Saturday.
Times, dates and venues will be confirmed for this qualifier clashes later on Tuesday. The first team drawn out will be given home advantage in most circumstances.
If the two teams met already in their province this year, the winner of that provincial championship game will have home advantage.
Also, if a county did not have a home game in the first round of the qualifier series in 2016 they will have a home tie this time around. If two such counties are drawn together the first team out of the bowl will play at home.
The qualifiers were divided into A and B sections to cut down on the waiting time for some teams eliminated early from their provincial championships.
The ‘A’ side of the draw will be played a week earlier than ‘B’. If a team from the A section make it through to the All-Ireland quarter-finals, they will play in the earlier two of the four games on the last weekend in July.
