REVEALED - Round One hurling draw sees big guns Kilkenny and Tipperary avoid each other
All-Ireland champions Tipperary will face Westmeath in Round One of the All-Ireland SHC qualifiers but Kilkenny against Limerick is the standout fixture.
The Treaty men face a daunting trip to Nowlan Park to take on the Cats, who are still reeling from their shock defeat to near-neighbours Wexford.
Parnell Park will be the venue for an all-Leinster affair when Ger Cunningham's Dublin take on Laois.
Derek McGrath's Waterford will be overwhelming favourites when they make the trip north to Tullamore to face Offaly.
After a heavy league final defeat to Galway and a disappointing loss to arch-rivals Cork, it is hard to see Michael Ryan's Tipperary not getting back on track when they face Westmeath in Thurles.
Confirmation of venues, times and dates for all fixtures will be confirmed following a meeting of the CCCC this afternoon.
