A crowd of around 20,000 are expected to attend the Leinster football championship double header scheduled for O’Moore Park on Saturday evening.
The action gets underway at 5pm on Saturday May 25 as Meath face Carlow in the first of the four quarter finals to be played this weekend.
This game will then be followed by the meeting of All-Ireland champions Dublin and Louth at 7pm.
Ahead of the first game, Carlow have been dealt a serious blow with the news that suspensions handed out following their league loss to Down have been upheld.
Midfielder Brendan Murphy, manager Turlough O’Brien and coach Steven Poacher will also miss the game after their bans were upheld on appeal.
Murphy and Poacher were banned for 12 weeks, while O’Brien, who had challenged a proposed 16-week ban, has had it raised to 20 weeks.
Tommy Wogan has been placed in temporary charge of Carlow in the meantime.
Laois begin their Leinster championship campaign on Sunday May 26 against Westmeath in Tullamore at 2pm.
That is the curtain raiser to the final quarter final which sees Kildare take on Longford at 4pm.
