All-Ireland quarter-final draws announced

By Michael McMullan

THE race to get hands on the Sam Maguire Cup will heat up this weekend after Monday morning’s quarter-final draw.

All three Ulster teams have been kept apart with champions Dublin up against Galway in the last eight.

There is a repeat of last year’s semi-final of Derry and Kerry while Ulster champions Donegal take on Louth. Armagh will take on Roscommon.

It follows a dramatic weekend that saw Conor Doherty’s penalty book Derry’s spot after a penalty shootout win over Mayo in Castlebar.

Louth had a first championship win over Cork for the first time since the 1957 All-Ireland final thanks to Sam Mulroy’s late free in Inniskeen.

Tyrone were knocked out when Roscommon earned a first ever championship win over the Red Hands.

Monaghan were beaten by Galway on a day when Barry McBennett’s rasper off the crossbar was a key moment in a tight battle.
