The draw for Round 2A of the football qualifiers was made this morning.

The first two names out of the drum pitted Antrim and Fermanagh against each other again after the Ernesiders beat the Saffron county in their Ulster quarter-final clash.

Brewster Park will be the venue again as Fermanagh were first out of the drum but Antrim will be buoyed by their shock win over Laois.

Offaly's reward for a comprehensive win over Waterford is home advantage against the losers of next week's Leinster semi-final between Dublin and Kildare.

Roscommon were comfortable winners over Cavan in the qualifiers last summer and will be hoping for a similar result when the side's meet at Kingspan Breffni Park.

Clare host Longford in the final game of the round.

All-Ireland SFC Qualifier Round 2A draw:

Fermanagh v Antrim

Offaly v Kildare/Dublin

Clare v Longford

Cavan v Roscommon

Confirmation of home venues, times and all dates for the fixtures will be confirmed following a meeting of the CCCC on Monday afternoon.
