The venues, dates and times for the round 4 qualifiers of the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship this weekend have been announced.

The meeting of Cavan and Tyrone will take place at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones this Saturday at 5.0pm and will be preceded by the Ulster U20 Football Championship match between Cavan and Tyrone at 2.45pm.

The Cork v Laois Qualifier will be played at Semple Stadium in Thurles on Saturday at 5.0pm and will be preceded at 3.0pm by the Electric Ireland All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship Round 1 Quarter-Final between Kilkenny and Clare.

The Qualifier meeting of Galway and Mayo has been scheduled for the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick at 7.0pm on Saturday. It will be preceded by the LGFA TG4 Connacht Senior Final Replay between Galway and Mayo at 4.0pm.

The GAA have insisted that efforts to fix the Galway-Mayo game for a Connacht venue were "not feasible as there was no agreement between the counties to toss for home advantage, and there was no other Connacht venue deemed capable of catering for the expected interest in the tie. Both counties were consulted and agreed to the Limerick venue which has a capacity of 43,000 with 20,000 seats."
