Elsewhere, Clare will play Tipperary in the last eight following today's draw on RTE Radio 1.

Both games will take place at the newly-refurbished Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

The Banner men went down to Cork in yesterday's Munster hurling final and now they must negotiate the All Ireland champions if they want to keep their hopes of winning the Liam MacCarthy Cup alive.

Round 4 of the football qualifiers was decided over the weekend with Cork due to face Mayo while Galway must face Donegal following their shock Connacht final defeat against Roscommon with both games due to take place on the weekend of July 22/23 at neutral venues

May0-Cork will take place at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick, while Galway will clash with Donegal at Markievicz Park in Sligo.

Following today's Round 3 draw, Tipp have home advantage against Armagh while Monaghan must travel to Carlow.
