A fixture with Mickey Harte's Tyrone in Omagh lies in wait for the losers of next week's Ulster semi-final replay between Armagh and Monaghan and is the standout clash in the All-Ireland Championship Round 2 draw.

Tyrone obliterated Louth in their Round 1B clash and both Armagh and Monaghan will be desperate to avoid a clash with the Red Hand team.

The game is one of a number of very interesting clashes in the Round 2B draw.

Kildare will be looking to bounce back from their sub-par performance against Meath yesterday when they travel to Newry to face James McCartan's Down.

Cavan will get an opportunity to avenge their Division Three final defeat to John Evans Roscommon when they host the Rossies at Breffni Park.

Carlow's reward for a first qualifier win since 2005 over Waterford on Saturday is a meeting with Clare at Dr Cullen Park.

In the 2A draw, the two sides beaten by Dublin in the Leinster Championship, Laois and Wexford, will clash at Wexford Park.

Tipperary gave Cork a massive fright in their Munster semi-final and will have home advantage over Jack Sheedy's Longford who were so impressive in their victory over Derry at Celtic Park.

Limerick will face Antrim at the Gaelic Grounds while Wicklow will fancy their chances in Aughrim against Sligo.
