rte to show meath-louth tie
RTE has confirmed that it will broadcast the Meath/Louth first-round qualifier from Kingspan Breffni Park on Saturday week, writes Colm Keys.
The plum draw of the first-round qualifiers was fixed for Cavan by the CCCC as part of a double-header with Cavan versus Longford.
The times of the other first-round matches vary, with Fermanagh's trip to Ruislip the first off with a throw-in time of 1.30. The time of the Laois/Tipperary match in Portlaoise, a repeat of last year, has yet to be finalised.
Antrim's home match with Westmeath has been fixed for 2.0 in Casement Park with both Offaly/Monaghan and Wicklow/Sligo timed for 7.0 that evening.
