THE All-Ireland qualifier draw has certainly fallen nicely for Limerick and Wexford, presenting them with home draws against Laois and Westmeath respectively.

Limerick and Wexford look all set to win and set themselves up for clashes with Antrim and Carlow respectively a week later.

By the time they play two beaten provincial semi-finalists for a place in the All-Ireland quarter-final, their confidence levels will be right back up. Who said that losing first-round games is bad for a county's championship health?
