The GAA has announced the details for the All-Ireland SFC qualifier Round 2 ties.

All bar one of the games will be played on Saturday week, June 23, with Offaly's clash with Clare taking place in Tullamore the following day.

Waterford will host Monaghan in Fraher Field, Tipperary will welcome Mayo to Thurles (this game will be shown live on Sky Sports), Carlow are at home to Tyrone in Netwatch Cullen Park, while Sligo, Leitrim and Longford will also have home advantage against Armagh, Louth and Kildare respectively.

A time and venue for the Cavan v Down fixture has yet to be confirmed. Cavan were due to have home advantage, but with Kingspan Breffni currently unavailable due to pitch improvement works, the all-Ulster clash is likely to be played in Clones instead.
