KERRY are to host old rivals Tyrone in the third round of the All-Ireland Championship next weekend.

The two big guns were drawn live on RTÉ's Morning Ireland today.

Kerry struggled to beat Westmeath yesterday, while Mickey Harte's Tyrone had a convincing win over Roscommon.

Meanwhile, Tipperary, who had a shock win over Wexford, have a home tie against Antrim.

The fourth round draw was also held live on radio.

The winners of Kerry and Tyrone will take on Clare and Sligo will face either Kildare or Limerick.

The winners of the game between Leitrim and Laois will take on the Leinster final losers, Dublin or Meath.

The losers of the Ulster final - either Donegal or Down - await the winner of the Tipperary and Antrim encounter.
