Championship Draw

(Oldest Posts First)

Just after watching the Sunday Game, great matches for ladies football. It is confirmed that the Championship Draw for 2018 is on Thursday the 19th of October. Will be on RTE 2.
I'm hoping that Derry get a crack at Armagh in their first match. Who do you all want to face in your first match? Interested to know who and why.

Armagh or Cavan home.... Good test under our belt but still slight favourites

Could not care less. The draw is a farce. We are in a Munster semi final. We will probably win it. We will play Kerry in a Munster final. We will probably lose it. There will then be a draw to see who we play to get into the super 8s. That will take place in July of next year. That will be interesting.

we're still basking in this year's success to worry about next year just yet. realistically though and people won't like what I'm going to say, Dublins summer next year doesn't start until the super 8s cause there is nobody in leinster capable of beating us.

They haven't leaked the league fixtures yet, but ok I'd like to get tipp away and hopefully cork in the final in PUC in the Munster draw.

Dublin. I feel we have the beating of them.

London in the Connacht semi-final and Sligo in the final. Emmm... yeah :)

Seriously though, it's always a good draw in which Galway, Mayo and R*******n are on the opposite side of the draw from Leitrim. At least it gives us some chance of making the final, although the last time I remember that happening, London beat Sligo and us to make the final.

Once we're on the opposite side of the draw to Meath I'd be happy.

Realistically we should be making the Leinster final in that scenario.

Tyrone have not met Cavan in the first round of the championship at home in my lifetime. So I would settle for that.

Antrim in Brewster and not a preliminary round either

Donegal v Fermanagh and winners of Cavan v Antrim in semi final.

Are Leitrim in New York next year?

Probably! I'm not certain. I knew when I was writing it that maybe they're out of Ireland for Round 1. I'll check where they were in 2013...

And you're right. In 2013 they enjoyed a 4-19 to 0-7 win (then lost to London and got annihilated by Armagh). So they're due a return there next May, and a win will only get them into the Connacht quarter-final (i.e. first round).

Would love another another trip down to KIlkenny, great craic when we played Laois down there last year. Wouldn't mind going down to Wexford either

Cork have no guarantees anymore in Munster.

They have fallen back alot and Tipp & Clare have improved alot. Either could take out Cork next year.
