All-Ireland SFC qualifier details: Gaelic Grounds to host Mayo v Galway on Saturday

July 01, 2019

The LIT Gaelic Grounds will host the clash of Galway and Mayo on Saturday.

The venues for the Round 4 Qualifiers of the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship were agreed by CCCC today.

The big Connacht derby between Galway and Mayo has been fixed for the LIT Gaelic Grounds on Saturday at 7pm. Efforts to fix the game for a Connacht venue were not feasible as there was no agreement between the counties to toss for home advantage, and there was no other Connacht venue deemed capable of catering for the expected large crowd. Croke Park is also out of bounds due to the Westlife concert. Both counties were consulted and agreed to the Limerick venue which has a capacity of 43,000 with 20,000 seats.

It will be preceded by the LGFA TG4 Connacht Senior Final Replay between Galway and Mayo at 4pm.

The meeting of Cavan and Tyrone will take place at St Tiernach’s Park in Clones on Saturday at 5pm and will be preceded by the Ulster U20 Football Championship match between Cavan and Tyrone at 2.45pm.

The Cork v Laois Qualifier will be played at Semple Stadium in Thurles on Saturday at 5pm and will be preceded at 3pm by the Electric Ireland All-Ireland Minor Hurling Championship Round 1 Quarter-Final between Kilkenny and Clare.

The Cavan-Tyrone and Galway-Mayo matches will be broadcast live by Sky Sports.

On Sunday, O’Moore Park in Portlaoise will host a double header. The SFC Qualifier meeting of Meath and Clare will take place at 2pm and will be shown live by RTÉ television. The All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Preliminary Quarter-Final between Laois and Dublin will then take place at 4.15pm.

The other Preliminary Quarter-Final will take place at TEG Cusack Park on Sunday with Westmeath and Cork meeting at 3pm.
