Some juicy encounters have emerged from the All-Ireland hurling and football qualifiers draws this morning.

Ger Cunningham will have to plot the downfall of his native Cork when he brings his Dublin side south in the pick of the Round 1 hurling qualifiers.

Laois face a daunting trip to Ennis where they will take on Davy Fitzgerald's league champions.

Offaly can bounce back from yesterday's defeat to Galway in the last four in Leinster against provincial rivals Wexford who will be looking for a big improvement from their defeat to Dublin.

Defeated Munster semi-finallists Limerick will make the trip to Mullingar to take on Westmeath.

In the Round 2A draw for the football qualifiers, the most anticipated game will most likely see the losers of next weekend's Dublin-Meath encounter travel north to play Damian Barton's Derry.

Sligo will play Leitrim in an all-Connacht affair, Mick Lillis' Laois face an interesting encounter with Clare in Ennis while the losers of the Cavan-Tyrone replay will host Carlow.
