Wexford it is for Louth and with Louth out first wee have home advantage. Wexford are a bit of bogey side for Louth in the Championship. Wee have lost four out of the last five meetings. The last time wee beat Wexford was in 1980. The winners have home advantage against the Dubs.

Wexford and Dublin in Dowdallshill. I presume the Dublin game will be all ticket. Will home advantage make us favourites Ollie.Good luck Wayne.

" home advantage against the Dubs "

Ha ha, that's some joke.

But we'll have our hands full with Wexford. Even though they lost to Waterford this year, no-one should take them for granted. We lost our last championship game against them by a point in Drogheda.

All championship matches are all ticket now 19616609 regardless of the opposition. I love the Louth and Wexford match to be in Croke Park. And if wee win that play the Dubs in Croke Park. You cant bate playing the Dubs in HQ.

I see if Louth beat Wexford in the first round of the Leinster Championship they are playing the Dubs in Portlaoise. I would rather play the Dubs in Croker than bringing both sets of supporters down to O'Moore Park.

Not according to this Louthman57. It says here that we are playing in the Theatre of Dreams:

You are right after all Louthman57. The match is in Wexford Park after all. It's on Sunday May 12th. Throw in at 3.00 pm. Louth have lost four of the last five Championship meetings against Wexford. Louth's last Championship victory against Wexford was in 1980. Their league record against Wexford is much better. They have won four of the last six meetings including the last league match down in Wexford Park in 2011, the same day Fitzer got elected first time around. The last time that Louth played Wexford in a Championship match in Wexford Park was in 1936 and Louth won on that occasion. It could be a lucky omen. Should they beat Wexford they will play the Dubs on Saturday May 25th. Throw in at 7.00 pm.
