After his controversial handling of last Saturday's All-Ireland SFC qualifier between Tyrone and Meath, Paddy Neilan has been appointed to referee the round 2 clash between Offaly and Clare on Sunday week.
The round 2 qualifier draw of the 2018 All-Ireland senior football championship took place this morning on Morning Ireland on RTE Radio 1 and involved all of the defeated provincial semi-finalists against the round 1 winners.
Kildare registered their first win in almost a year when goals in either half from Daniel Flynn and Niall Kelly propelled them to a comfortable victory over Derry in their All-Ireland first round qualifier at Owenbeg.
"It was no goal, and it's after costing us a point. But it's dog eat dog in Munster, so it is. We've to come back up here next Sunday and beat Limerick now. When you're not having any luck, you're not having any luck. But I'm so proud of the lads."
