Where, when and what time – GAA confirm details of Laois v Monaghan

Earlier this morning, the Laois footballers were drawn against Monaghan in Round 4 of the All-Ireland Qualifiers.

John Sugrue’s men lost their ten game winning streak when they were defeated by All-Ireland champions Dublin in the Leinster final eight days ago.

Dublin progressed to the Super 8s and Laois can still join them, but only if they defeat Monaghan in this game.

This will be the first championship meeting between Laois and Monaghan since 2012 when a then Justin McNulty managed O’Moore County won by 2-12 to 0-12 in a Round 2 Qualifier.

But now the GAA have just announced that Laois will play Monaghan in Navan at 2pm on Sunday.

One of the Qualifiers will be played in Portlaoise as Roscommon and Armagh clash in O’Moore Park on Saturday at 3pm.

Meanwhile, Cork face Tyrone at 5pm on Saturday in O’Moore Park also and that game will be live on Sky Sports.

While Kildare take on Fermanagh at 7pm on the same day in Navan in the other game that is live on Sky.

RTE will now show the replay of the Leinster senior hurling championship final between Galway and Kilkenny on Sunday instead at 3pm.

Should Laois make the Super 8s now, they will be in the group with Kerry, Galway and one other team.

The Kerry game would be home on the second week of the Super 8s and the Galway game would be away – on the weekend of the Galways Races.

The first round of the Super 8s would be against either the beaten Ulster finalists Fermanagh or Kildare and this will be in Croke Park.
