LIMERICK have been drawn to play Longford in round one of the All-Ireland senior football Qualifiers.

The game will take place on the weekend of June 29/30 and Limerick will have to travel to Pearse Park in Longford for the game.

The draw was made this Monday morning live on RTE Radio’s Morning Ireland by Dublin’s Ciaran Whelan. Limerick were the last team out of the bowl and were drawn as the away side.

The tie is a repeat of last season when Maurice Horan’s won a thrilling contest after extra time.

Limerick will be looking to bounce back from their 18-point Munster SFC defeat to Cork.

Ahead of the trip to Longford, all members of the Limerick panel will be involved in club championship action next weekend with two games on Friday and four on Saturday in the Limerick SFC.

Already, Limerick have injury concerns over Mark O’Riordan, Pa Ranahan and Seanie Buckley with Ian Ryan still ruled out with an ankle injury.

Elsewhere in the draw it is: Tyrone v Offaly, Galway v Tipperary, Derry v Sligo, Westmeath v Fermanagh, Laois v Carlow, Armagh v Wicklow and Louth v Antrim.
