We are getting down to the business end of the season as the All Ireland football championship really starts to take shape.

Saturday's wins by Mayo and Galway mean that in next Sunday's Croke Park All-Ireland quarter final double bill, Connacht champions Roscommon will meet Mayo in an all western clash while Kerry will take on Galway as there cannot be a repeat of the Connacht final pairing (Roscommon v Galway) in the last eight.

In the qualifiers in Croke Park on Saturday, Down will face Monaghan (5pm - SKY) while Armagh go into battle against Kildare (7pm - SKY) with the winners of each clash pitted against Dublin or Tyrone on Saturday, August 5 in the quarter-final (Dublin can't face Kildare/Tyrone can't face Down).
