Yesterday's Round 2 Qualifier draw threw up a repeat of last year's Munster quarter-final, which TJ Ryan's side edged by a point, while it pits Cork and Wexford for the second year running (5.0).

Cork and Limerick supporters will be treated to inter-county action in both codes as the Rebel footballers bid to bounce back from a surprise Munster defeat to Tipperary against the Treaty in the curtain raiser (3.0).

Mayo take their first step towards recovery when they host Fermanagh.
